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.

Kungsbacka is one of the preeminent, historical and potential tourism destinations that is located in Europe. It is a municipality in Halland County, in southwest Sweden. It is located about 30 kilometers south of Gothenburg. The total population of the municipality is 65,113. Its area is 610.3 square kilometers, with a population density of 107 inhabitants per square kilometers.
Kungsbacka is closely integrated in the region of Metropolitan Gothenburg, but despite this it is administratively not a part Vastra Gotaland County like the rest of the region. The municipal seat is located in the town of Kungsbacka. A local geographical landmark is the glacial ridge Fjaras bracka, to the south of the town, but it is the coast that is the predominant geographical feature.
Roman historian Tacitus, who wrote that the Suiones tribe lived out in the sea and were powerful in both arms and ships, first mentioned Sweden in the 1st century. Tacitus expressed concern that these Swedes might ally with neighboring tribes and cause trouble for the Roman Empire. From this tribe, Sweden derived its name. The Geats in the Gotaland territory, on the other hand, inhabited the southern parts, and Beowulf speaks of semi-legendary Swedish-Geatish wars in the 6th century.

Kungsbacka enjoys a very positive reputation with worldwide travelers, and is one of the most visited places. It is also said the place of best geographical environment and can trace its origin back to prehistoric times. One can also learn about its history, from its earliest times and pursue enthusiasm in its natural beauty and populace.
