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.
Sater is one of the preeminent, historical and potential tourism destinations that is located in Europe. It is a municipality in Dalarna County, in central Sweden. Its seat is in Sater  which is a picturesque small town. It has a area of 74 square kilometers. Its population as of 2005 was 10,980 and density is 19 per square kilometers.
The town Sater was founded in 1630, and much of its old town today has still kept wooden houses and street structure from that time, which few Swedish cities have. One of the oldest houses is the city hall. At the location there was a royal mansion named Sater's Royal Mansion. Sweden's first copper mint was built at the location in 1624, influenced by its proximity to the copper mountain at Falun with its tannery that had been located to Sater a few years earlier.
Sater is known for the Sater Valley. It is about 5 kilometers long and has a dense vegetation and steeps. The Ljuster River flows on its bottom. The valley is popular for walking. The old church of Stora Skedvi is one of Dalarna's oldest, with its oldest parts from the 13th century. There are several remains from the province's mining history. The Sater hospital was opened in 1912 and was at the time Sweden's largest mental hospital.

Sater is also said to be as the town of best geographical environment and can trace its origins back to prehistoric times. Today, one can also learn about its history, from its earliest times and pursue enthusiasm in its natural beauty and populace.
