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.
Eindhoven is an exclusive touristic city located in Europe. It is a municipality and a city situated in the province of Noord-Brabant in the south of Netherlands, originally at the convergence of the Dommel and Gender brooks. The Gender was dammed off in the post-war years, but the Dommel still runs through the city.
Eindhoven boasts many traces of its colonial past and enjoys peaceful lifestyle sheltered from the accelerated pace of the large cities. In its discovered history, the traces of settlement in the city date long back to 1232 century, when Duke Hendrik I of Brabant granted city rights to Eindhoven.
Eindhoven has grown from a small village in 1232 to one of the largest cities in the Netherlands with over 209,179 inhabitants in 2006. Much of its growth is due to the industry of Philips. In 2005, a full third of the total amount of money spent on research in the Netherlands was spent in or around Eindhoven. A quarter of the jobs in the region are in technology and ICT, with companies such as Toolex, Simac, Neways, Atos Origin and DAF.
The biggest festivals in Eindhoven include Carnival, Koninginnedag, national day, Fiesta del Sol, street- and music acts, Pro Tour, international cycling tour, Park Hilaria, fun fair, Reggae Sundance and reggae festival. Eindhoven is also significant center with respect to its transportation. It is a rail transport node with many connections. It is also connected by air transport internationally and nationally.

Even though Eindhoven meant the partial loss of its tourist profile due to urbanization, some features of its past times of splendor still remain, with hotels and hostelries that are swarmed by thousands of visitors each year.
