The European Union began with the establishment of the European Coal & Steel Community in 1951. The six founding members are France, German Federal Republic, Italy, Belgium, The Netherlands and Luxembourg.  The Treaties of Rome were signed March 25, 1957.  This established the European Economic Community and the Euratom.  These communities were merged into one institution called the Commission.

The Euro


The Euro is the single currency used by most of the European Union's member states.  At present there are 15 Member States; 12 of which have accepted the Euro.  The other 3 are currently using their own currency.  All barriers of trade among them have been removed.



The European Parliament building and the European Union Council of Ministers Office are both located in Brussels, Belgium.
