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.
Sollentuna municipality is a Municipality in Stockholm County, in central Sweden. Sollentuna borders the municipalities of Solna, Sundbyberg, Stockholm, Jarfalla, Upplands Vasby, Taby and Danderyd in clockwise order starting to the south. Sollentuna evolved around the railway between Uppsala and Stockholm which is also obvious when looking at the 8 different districts that make up Sollentuna. 5 of those correspond to railway stations now operated by commuter trains. From south to north, Helenelund, Tureberg, railway station is named Sollentuna, Haggvik, Norrviken and Rotebro. Viby is an extension of Norrviken and the 2 remaining districts, Edsberg and Sjoberg, are to be found along the road to Danderyd. Other roads into Sollentuna include the road from Kallhäll to Rotebro and the motorway, E4 that approximates the same route as the railway. Sollentuna received rights as a merchant town or koping in 1944. It never got a charter, but was made a municipality with the reform of 1971.
