Transalpina este cel mai inalt drum rutier din Romania si chiar din intregul lant al Muntilor Carpati, atat din Romania cat si din afara ei, atingand altitudinea maxima in Pasul Urdele 2145 m. Soseaua traverseaza Muntii Parang de la N la S fiind paralela cu Valea Oltului si Valea Jiului aflandu-se intre acestea. Desi este mai inalta mai veche si mai frumoasa decat Transfagarasanul, este mai putin cunoscuta pentru ca , Transalpina, cu toate ca este catalogat drum national, DN 67c (partial), nu a fost pana in 2009 niciodata asfaltata. Transalpina a fost cosntruita de armatele romane in drumul lor spre Sarmisegetusa, pavata cu piatra de Regele Carol al II-lea dupa 1930 si reablitata de nemti in al II-lea razboi mondial dupa carea a fost uitata.Faptul ca a fost uitata si a devenit un drum greu de parcurs a ajutat Transalpina sa-si pastreze neatinsa salbaticia si farmecul aparte pe care putine locuri din tara il mai au. Este printre putinele drumuri din tara pe care se poata ajunge cu masina pana la.....nori si chiar deasupra lor. Intregul tur virtual aici.

This is an overview of Europe

Europe is generally agreed to be the birthplace of western culture, including such legendary innovations as the democratic nation-state, football and tomato sauce.

The word Europe comes from the Greek goddess Europa, who was kidnapped by Zeus and plunked down on the island of Crete. Europa gradually changed from referring to mainland Greece until it extended finally to include Norway and Russia.

Don't be confused that Europe is called a continent without looking like an island, the way the other continents do. It's okay. The Ural mountains have steadily been there to divide Europe from Asia for the last 250 million years. Russia technically inhabits "Eurasia".

Europe is presently uniting into one political and economic zone with a common currency called the Euro. The European Union originated in 1993 and is now composed of 27 member states. Its headquarters is in Brussels, Belgium.

Do not confuse the EU with the Council of Europe, which has 47 member states and dates to 1949. These two bodies share the same flag, national anthem, and mission of integrating Europe. The headquarters of the Council are located in Strasbourg, France, and it is most famous for its European Court of Human Rights.

In spite of these two bodies, there is still no single Constitution or set of laws applying to all the countries of Europe. Debate rages over the role of the EU in regards to national sovereignty. As of January 2009, the Lisbon Treaty is the closest thing to a European Constitution, yet it has not been approved by all the EU states.
