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.
Eisenstadt is an exclusive touristic city located in Europe. It is a city in Austria, the state capital of Burgenland. The present population of the city has to grown up to 12,000 inhabitants and the population density to 284 inhabitants per square kilometer. Initially, in the Habsburg monarchy, Eisenstadt was the seat of the Esterhazy noble family.
Eisenstadt lies on a plain leading down to the river Wulka, at the south foot of the mountain range known as the Leithagebirge, about 12 kilometers from the Hungarian border. The city is divided into four districts such as Oberberg, Unterberg, Kleinhoflein and Saint Georgen.

According to the precious archeological findings, the Eisenstadt area was already settled in the Hallstatt period. Celts and Romans settled somewhat later. During the migration period, the area was inhabited by different Germanic tribes and the Huns. Around 800 century, during the reign of Charlemagne, settlement by the Bavarii began. In 1945, it was occupied by the Red Army, and the city lingered until 1955 under Soviet occupation.
