Playing with giant Lutausis at Tervete Nature Park, Latvia
Latvia

The area of the Tērvete Nature Park occupies more than 1200 hectares, and most of its territory is covered with forests. The landscaped part of the park with the area of 400 hectares features cultivated landscapes and attractions. The Tērvete River crossed by numerous bridges and footbridges meanders through the park. An extensive network of paths and trails makes it easy for pedestrians, cyclists and families with baby carriages to access the sights.

The Fairytale Forest, the Playground and the Dwarfs’ Forest enjoy the biggest popularity in the park. The sightseeing of this thematic area of the forest takes at least 3 hours. The unique pine forest with its stately trees, whose age is close to 300 years, calls forth genuine admiration from nature lovers. Paths for quiet walks permeate not only the part of the Old Pine Park, but also the entire forest.

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.
