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.
Edam is one of the Europe’s most popular destinations, and is well known for the quantity of cultural related attractions and monuments that the city has embraced. It is a town in the Netherlands, in the province of North Holland, about 20 kilometers to the northeast of Amsterdam.
Edam has played a significant role in the history. Historically a chartered town since 1357, thriving on trade and agriculture, Edam has nevertheless remained relatively small. The town has nowadays grown together with neighbouring Volendam. Its main claim to international fame is Edam cheese.
Like some of its sister cities and towns, Edam is blessed with beautiful surroundings and a unique natural setting. The picturesque scenery, the majesty of the mountains, the slow pace of life, and the welcoming nature of its people all combine to make this region one of the most important touristic attractions in Europe.
