Rogoznica Croatia
Croatia

Rogoznica is a popular tourist village on the Dalmatian coast in Croatia that lies in the southernmost part of the Sibenik-Knin county, in a deep bay sheltered from wind, about 30 km from Sibenik. In the 2001 census, the population of the village was 2,391, with 96% declaring themselves Croats.

The part of Rogoznica that lies on the mainland was populated already in 1390. In 1518 the inhabitants fled in front of the Turkish army to safety of the nearby island.

In the recent history, the nearby village of Zecevo became known widely during the Croatian war of independence when the Croatian volunteer army hit two planes of the Yugoslav army during the aerial bombing, and one of the soldiers shouted triumphantly: "Both went down!" which at the time meant a lot for the course of the war, and these words are still connected to the place.

Rahim Ademi, a Croatian general during the Homeland War, was stationed in Rogoznica for a time.

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.
