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.
Vansbro is a Municipality in Dalarna County, in central Sweden. Its seat is in Vansbro,. The town is situated by the end of the rivulet Vanan, the main tributary of the Vasterdal River. Many of the parishes and towns of today can be traced several centuries back. Around Jarna has been found ovens from the Viking Age or older, showing that the town had been used in the processing of iron for a long time, and probably leading to its name.

Vansbro Municipality with its current borders was created with the municipal reform of 1971. Several small villages and parishes were united with the municipality. The largest town Vansbro, at the time been dominated by wood industry for some 80 years, became the seat and gave it its name. The coat of arms shows the sign of iron, an axe and a sword.
