View from Socerb over the gulf of Trieste
Slovenia

View from the abandoned military lookout to the gulf of Trieste in Italy. The lookout stands in Slovenia, in the immediate vicinity of the Italian border. The lookout was used by the Yugoslavian army.

The numerous big oil tanks, which are used for temporay storage of oil (...) brougt by the tanker ships to the port of Trieste, are most noticable. In the background is Trieste. On the right (just above the highway) is the Trieste main hospital. The big industrial area on the right of oil tanks is the factory  Grandi Motori, where the engines of the ships, including cruise ships, are constructed. The peninsula on the left of Trieste is Debeli rtič, half on the Italian side, half on the Slovenian side of the border. Even further on the left is the town Koper.

More About 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. Text by Steve Smith.
