Wild horses on Cincar mountain
Bosnia and Herzegovina
Cincar is the mountain in the Dinaric massif located in the south-western part of Bosnia and Herzegovina between Livno and Glamoč. Its highest peak is 2006m high. At the southern foot of Cincar, at about 1,200 meters above sea level there is karst plateau Krug, overgrown with pastures. At this plateau, you may see herds of wild horses wandering around the mountain. Replacement of horses with mechanization in agricultural activities and large emigration almost fifty years ago are the main reasons why horses were left to survive alone in the mountains. Wild horses on Cincar are among the rare wild horses in Europe. They survive and find food alone, without help of people, even in the winter when they dig the grass under the snow. They survive winters together in a large herd, while the rest of the year they divide into smaller groups. Usually they are afraid of people, but sometimes they still approach and even pose for photos in exchange for few sugar cubes.

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.
