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.
Harjedalen is a Municipality in north eastern Sweden. The seat is in Sveg with 2,500 inhabitants, situated in east. According to the 2005 census, population was 11,364, density 1 per square kilometers and area 15,825 square kilometers.
Geographically, the municipality corresponds to the old Swedish province Harjedalen, although it incorporates some additional land to the east. With a total area of 15,825 square kilometers, it is Sweden's fifth largest. However, its nature is largely wilderness, and the municipality is scarsely inhabited. For comparisment, the municipality is as large as Uppsala County and Stockholm County combined, but those two counties have over 2,000,000 inhabitants.
Harjedalen experiences a boom with day tourists, owing to the clear air, town character with rich culture, high quality of life and conspicuously original history. The picturesque scenery, the majesty of nature, the slow pace of life, and the welcoming nature of its people also combine to make this region one of the most important tourist attractions in Europe.
