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.

Lessebo Municipality is a Municipality in eastern Kronoberg County, in southern Sweden where the town Lessebo is seat. The population of the municipality was 8,198 in 2005, density is 19.77 per square kilometers, and area is 414 square kilometers.
Lessebo is best known for the manufacture of glassware. It is located in Sweden's so called Glasriket, which also includes the municipalities of Uppvidinge, Emmaboda and Nybro. The main glassblower company in Lessebo is Kosta Boda, established in 1742 as Kosta.
In its history, Lessebo still honours the Swedish emigration in the late 19th century, whereby many poor farmers from Sweden, many of them from Smalandia emigrated to the U.S. When Vilhelm Moberg wrote his acclaimed novels about this time, he located his main characters' home to the parish of Ljuder in eastern Lessebo. An honorary Walk of the Emigrants also stretches through the municipality and continues to Karlshamn in the south.

It can also be considered as the preeminent, historical and potential tourism destination that enjoys a very positive reputation with worldwide travelers to become one of the most visited places.
