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.
Karlshamn is a Swedish city in Blekinge in southern Sweden. It has 19,000 inhabitants, and 31,000 in the municipal area. The population of the city is 18,392. The Kingdom of Sweden is a Nordic country in Scandinavia. The country has large natural resources of water, timber, and iron ore. Blekinge  is a historical province in the south of Sweden. The status of city in Sweden was granted by a Royal Charter until it was abolished in 1971.
Karlshamn received a Royal Charter and city privileges in 1664, when King Charles X Gustav realized the strategic location near the Baltic Sea and the rivalling Danish troops there. In 1666 the town changed its name from Bodekull to Karlshamn, literally Karl's Port.
Karlshamn, justifiably so, enjoys a very positive reputation with worldwide travelers, and is one of the most visited place. It is also said the place of best geographical environment and can trace its origin back to prehistoric times.
