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.
Lomma Municipality is located in Skane, about 10 kilometers north of Malmo, in southernmost Sweden. Its seat is located to the small town Lomma. The small municipality the 20th smallest in Sweden borders to Kävlinge, Burlöv, Staffanstorp and Lund. As Burlov also is notably small, Lomma almost borders to Malmö too. The population of the municipality was 18,595, area is 56 square kilometers, and density is 327 per square kilometers.
The area where Lomma is now is located between two small rivers, and was inhabited by hunters in the Stone Age. The name Lomma can be traced to 1085, and in the ensuing centuries it established some wealth thanks to merchancy with the episcopal see in Lund.
None the less, the area was only a village until Sweden's first cement works was established in 1871. The ground consists of a certain clay stemming from the last ice age, and is available in large quantities in Lomma. A full fledged industry was started in the 1860s, and by the end of the century Lomma had five brick factories. The bricks from Lomma are yellow of appearance and were regarded as the highest kind of bricks during that century.
The two main towns in the municipality are Lomma and Bjärred. With some 8,300 inhabitants, they have almost the exact same population figures, and combined they house 93 percent of the municipal population. In comparisment, Bjarred may be regarded as more fashionable town than Lomma.
Today, one can also learn about its history, from its earliest times and gain enthusiasm in its natural beauty and populace. Lomma enjoys a very positive reputation with worldwide travelers.
