Europe is one of the five inhabited traditional continents of the Earth. Physically and geologically, Europe is the westernmost peninsula of Eurasia, which is to the 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, 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.
Eslov municipality is a Swedish municipality in southern Sweden with its seat in the Scanian town of Eslov with 20,000 inhabitants. Eslov largely serves as a suburb of Malmo and Lund. In 1911, the city of Eslov received its privileges, after incorporating the parish of Vastra Sallerup. Since 1875, Eslov had been a town by its own. Today, the city has a growing population of about 16,800. Eslov was a small village until the Southern Railline between Stockholm and Malmo which ran through in the mid 1800's. Trade flourished around the new station and eventually it also attracted industrial settlings.
The municipality has several interesting places. There are 11 castles. Hjularods castle was the place for the Swedish television classic Mystery of Greveholm, which was sent by SVT. In the Vastra Stro village, there are old rune stones from ca year 1000. Sweden's only sugar refinery lies in Ortofta to the south of Eslov. In Eslov, there are two nature reserves, Allmanningen and Abullahagen. The Stone Mountain, Eslov Church and Hotel Sten Stensson Sten with the locally famous Scanish Steps lie in the middle of Eslov. The most famous inhabitant of Eslov is the comicer Johan Glans, who had made several television series. Sweden’s highest wooden house known as Lagerhuset is located in the city. In 2007, it will open dwellings. The building was first built as a magasine for cereal during World War I.

Eslov is a beautiful place. As it is often regarded as among the most beautiful parts of Europe, it is one of the most visited places amongst the most die hard travelers the world over.
