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.

Ialysos also known as Trianta is the second largest town on the island of Rhodes in Greece. It has a population of about 12,000 and is located 8 kilometers south of the town of Rhodes, the island's capital, on the island's northwestern coast. The town is located near the site of the ancient Doric polis of Ialysos, which is also the name of the modern municipality consisting of the town Ialysos and the surrounding areas.

Ialysos has become a tourist destination, with several hotels and resorts located on the coast, especially in the new settlement of Ixia, situated between the towns of Ialysos and Rhodes. Being on the usually windward north-western coast of the island, it is also a noted location for wind-surfing. Ialysos is the kind of town you daydream about. It is an attractive city with natural beauty and historical places, while traveling in Europe.
