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.
Heby is a municipality in Vastmanland County, in central Sweden, belonging to the province Uppland. The municipality covers an area of 1169.2 square kilometers and the total population is of 13653 out of which 6969 are male and 6684 are female with a population density of 12 inhabitants per square kilometers. Its seat is in Heby with 2,600 inhabitants, situated at 59 degree 56 minutes north and 16 degree 53 minutes east.
The Dalalven River forms Heby's northern border. The municipality also has substantial forests with animals such as elk, deer, fox, bear and lynx. In September 2005 it was reported that the municipality was permitted to be part of Uppsala County after intense lobbying in the late 1990s, following a municipal poll in 1998 where the majority was in support of the county transition. The transition might take place on January 1, 2007. There is however forces still working for the transition not to take place. Today, one can also learn about its history, from its earliest times and can also enjoy its natural beauty concealed by the beautiful landscapes.
