Pamvotis Lake Ioannina
Greece

This panorama was taken from the lakeshore of lake Pamvotis in Ioannina. The Byzantine castle of Ioannina is barely visible, hidden behind the trees. On top of the castle a minaret and a mosque (Ashlan Pasha mosque, now a Municipal museum) are visible, remnants of the Ottoman occupation of Greece. Within a hundred meters from the camera position, there are plenty of restaurants and cafeterias (behind the trees and on the right side of the fun park). Far behind the castle and to its left the island of Ioannina is visible. It is is the only inhabited lake island in Europe. The settlements visible across the lake are called Perama and Amfithea(left to right) and the mountain range above is called Mitsikeli.

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.
