Comuna Valea Doftanei este amplasata intr-un cadru natural pitoresc, cu multe valente turistice si lipsit de surse de poluare si degradare a mediului.
Campina lui Grigorescu si Hasdeu se afla la rascruce de drumuri. Din ea pleaca in directia nord o sosea ce serpuieste pe valea apei Doftana. Dupa ce Iasi in urma colinele domoale, muzeul Doftana de la Telega si cheile Brebului, valea se ingusteaza, capatand frumuseti montane desavarsite.
Inainte de intrarea in localitatea Valea Doftanei, apele raului au fost zagazuite prin constructia barajului de la Paltinu, formand un lac de acumulare ce poate fi asemuit cu " o mica mare montana" - zona turistica de mare atractie.
Comuna Valea Doftanei este situata in nordul judetului Prahova, in zona Carpatilor de Curbura, pe cursul mijlociu al raului cu acelasi nume.
Ea se afla situata in partea nordica a judetului Prahova, intre vaile Prahova si Teleajen.
Relieful muntos al acestei localitati este mai accentuat catre nord, unde este limitrofa cu judetul Brasov. Acolo, spre obarsia Doftanei se inalta masive muntoase ca: Orjogoaia, Radela, Cucioaia, Zanoaga, Baiu Mare, Baiu Mic, Unghia Mare si Unghia Mica. Privit din departare, muntele Unghia Mare, cu liniile lui geometrice, seamana cu o piramida egipteana, impantata parca dinadins aici in framantatul peisaj carpatin. Tot aici se insiruie muntii Patru, Steiasa, Fundurile si o serie de "clabucete" spre sud.

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.
