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. 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.
Varnamo municipality is one of the preeminent, historical and potential tourism destinations that is located in Europe. Varnamo is a municipality in Jonkoping County, in southern Sweden where the town Varnamo is seat. In modern times, Varnamo credits itself by a friendly attitude towards refugees and immigrants.
Varnamo traces its history back to a village in the medieval age, the first written mention of it stems from the 13th century. It came into existence as a village to the eastern side of a fordable place over the River Lagan, a river that for large parts is difficult to travel through. As there were also smaller streams to the south and west of this location, it was considered something of a safeguard, leading to its name being Varn, which means safeguard, and which is a geographical location reference of some kind. It came to be the center of the Ostbo hundred, and a seat of merchancy, and was given formal rights as such when it became a koping in 1659, falling under the jurisdiction of the city of Jonkoping.
The town of Varnamo was insignificant for a long time, but with the Swedish population growth and industrialization in the 19th century it expanded, becoming an independent koping in 1859. The Swedish railroad nets spurred to enhance its industrial life, leading to a population increasing from 1,141 people in 1910 to 3,664 in 1920, and making it significant enough to be granted a charter on November 1, 1920, whereby it became one of the now only historical cities of Sweden.

Varnamo 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. The might of the sector services continues attracting new inhabitants in the city.
