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.
Landskrona is a city in southernmost Sweden with around 27,000 inhabitants. It is seat of the Landskrona Municipality with 39,000 inhabitants living within an area of 141 square kilometers. Granted a charter in 1413, it has since played an important part in the history of both Sweden and Denmark. The city Landskrona was founded at the location of Scania's best natural harbor, a geographical region of Sweden on the southernmost tip of the Scandinavian Peninsula, a historical province of the Kingdom of Sweden. A Carmelite monastery was founded in 1410, English merchants were granted the privileges in a royal charter in 1412, and the town itself was chartered in 1413. After the Scanian lands was ceded to Sweden in 1658, the good harbor and the strong fort were reasons for plans to make Landskrona a commercial center of the acquired territory with extraordinary privileges for foreign trade. Landskrona Municipality is a municipality in southernmost Sweden.
