It looks like some species of longhorn beetle to me.  There's a website with pictures of the various species here--you can try typing in your country in the lower left and it should give you pictures of the types native to your area: http://www.cerambycoidea.com/gallery.asp

I agree, that is a longhorn, or cerambycid, beetle. You can tell by enlongate body and long cylindrical antennae, and some of them make pretty loud noises when bothered.
