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.
Lindesberg Municipality is a Municipality, in Orebro County, in central Sweden. Its seat is located in Lindesberg. The population of the municipality was 23,300, density is 17 per square kilometers, and area 1,382 square kilometers.
Lindesberg has centuries old history, being the center of an old mining district. The earliest known traces of a town are in the foundations of the 14th century stone church. That town was however known as Lindesas. The mining district Lindesberg was mentioned on the 16th century grand map Carta Marina. Lindesberg got its charter and current name in 1643, granted by Queen Christina, making it one of the now defunct Cities of Sweden. The name Lind means lime tree, which is why the coat of arms depicts a tree.

Lindesberg is also known as the town of best geographical environment and has traced its origins back to prehistoric times. Today, one can also learn about its history, from its earliest times and can also enjoy its natural beauty concealed by the beautiful landscapes.
