260 Europe

In which European capital city can you work in the city centre and then get to a ski slope within 10 minutes of finishing? Plamen Russev, the chairman of the Webit conference calls in from this city to talk with ShaoLan about Europe, his home town (listen in to find out where it is) and country and how to say all these names in Chinese!

The Chinese word for “Europe” is 歐洲/欧洲, where the first character 歐/欧 simply represents Europe in a phonetic way, while 洲 is the word for “island” or “continent,” so the 歐/欧 continent is Europe!
