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.

Along with the city of Strangnas, the municipality is also made up with the city of Mariefred. Strangnas is the episcopal see of a former Romancatolic and present Lutheran bishopric, with the Strangnas Cathedral, built 1291 as an important landmark. The total area is of 741 square kilometers with population of 30,522 inhabitants. The population density is of 41 square kilometers.
The name Strangnas is first encountered in 1120, as the name of the Diocese. It leads back to the fact that the city is placed by a strait and on several hills, especially on two major ones, the Mill Hill and the Cathedral Hill. The name Strangnas means Strang- String or Strait and Nas-Cape. A monastery was established around 1250, and the cathedral inaugurated in 1291 and the town continued to evolve around these two institutions.

Strangnas 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.
