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.
Drosia or Drossia is a tourist place in Europe. It is rather exclusive suburb in Attica, Greece, just about 22 kilometers north of Athens. Drosia is a mainly residential suburb, known for its location in the midst of evergreen pine forests. During the extreme heat of Greek summers, many Athenians drive up to Drosia on the weekends, seeking cool and shade in the taverns, cafes and one outdoor cinema theater, for which the area is known.
Drosia sits between the Athenian plain and the Penteli mountains. The plain is to the west, the forests of the mountains that are connected with the mountain north of Penteli is to the east. Drosia is bounded with the Megali Diktyo as well as the agglomeration to the south. The Cephissus River lies to the west. The main avenues are Leoforos Marathonos, and Grigoris Lamprakis Street connecting to the nearby communities of Dionysos and Rhea. Drosia is located Southeast of Thiva, South of Euboea and Oropos, West of Marathon, Northeast of Kifissia and Northeast of the Attiki Odos.
On September 7, 1999 earthquake rumbled Drosia causing no damages to properties. Luxury villas and apartment complexes now characterize most of the urban development in Drosia, so that the forested areas are dwindling. The houses in the 1980s and the 1990s reached up to the foot of the Penteli mountain. Housing construction continues to this day. Most of the population is now urban, until the 1960s and the 1970s it was primarily rural. Drosia is also said to be as the town of best geographical environment and can trace its origins back to prehistoric times.
