Veliko Rujno
Croatia

Veliko Rujno and Malo Rujno are two connected plateaus on the Velebit mountain. Together they make up the most spacious terrace on Velebit about 7 km long and 1 km wide at an altitude of about 900m.

Once the plateau was inhabited from spring to autumn, when the inhabitants of the nearby coastal settlements lived on Rujno as farmers, but returned to their winter homes in the coastal area. Today, many houses are restored, but mainly serve as cottages.
The Chapel of Our Lady on Veliko Rujno was built in year 1933. Every year at the 15th of August Mass is held at the chapel and Rujno is then visited by many people from the surrounding area as well as mountaineers from all over Croatia.

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.
