City of Leeds

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.
The City of Leeds is a metropolitan borough with city status in West Yorkshire in northern England, stretching from Otley and Wetherby in the north, on the border with North Yorkshire, to the border with the district of Wakefield in the south and from Pudsey on the border with the district of the City of Bradford in the west, to Garforth and Micklefield in the east. It is named after its major settlement, Leeds, which is also the administrative seat. To the south and west, the borders of the district cover mostly urban and suburban areas. To the east and north, the district also includes urban and suburban areas with a little green space, as Temple Newsam Park, Roundhay Park, and Potternewton Park all lie in the east of the city.  Its total population in the year 2005 was 723,100 and its density is 1,311 per square kilometers.

The metropolitan borough was formed in 1974, under the Local Government Act 1972, from the area of the former County Borough of Leeds, Aireborough Urban District, Horsforth Urban District, the Municipal Borough of Morley, and Otley Urban District, the Municipal Borough of Pudsey, Rothwell Urban District and parts of Tadcaster Rural District, Wetherby Rural District and Wharfedale Rural District. City of Leeds is also known as the town of best geographical environment and has traced its origins back to prehistoric times. Today, one can also learn about its history, from its earliest times and can also enjoy its natural beauty concealed by the beautiful landscapes.
