Europe is one of the five inhabited traditional continents of the Earth. Physically and geologically, Europe is the westernmost peninsula of Eurasia, west of Asia. Europe is bounded to the north by the Arctic Ocean, to the west by the Atlantic Ocean, to the south by the Mediterranean Sea, and to the southeast by the waterways adjoining the Mediterranean to and including the Black Sea and the Caucasus Mountains. On the east, Europe is divided from Asia by the water divide of the Ural Mountains and by the Caspian Sea. Europe is the world's second-smallest continent in terms of area and third-largest continent after Asia and Africa in population.

Danderyd is a Swedish municipality in Stockholm County, in central Sweden. It has total population of 29,884, out of which 14,408 are male and 15,476 are female. It is one of the smallest cities in Sweden, but the most affluent and its seat is located to Djursholm. The current mayor is Gunnar Oom, of the Moderate Party. The four districts making up Danderyd aresuch as Danderyd, Djursholm, Enebyberg and Stocksund.
The population in Danderyd is among the wealthiest in the country, having the highest average taxed income per capita. One of the reasons for this is the high price on real estate, which in turn is partially due to a restrictive policy on new developments by the municipality council. It has the total area of 26 square kilometer.

The high income of the population has enabled the municipality to maintain a relatively low rate of taxation, but a government redistribution scheme intended to transfer money from municipalities with a better than average economic situation is one factor that has forced the local government to raise the municipal income tax somewhat in the last few years. As it is often regarded as among the most beautiful parts of Europe one of the most visited places amongst the most die-hard travelers the world over.
