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.
Munkfors is a municipality in Varmland County, in west central Sweden. Its seat is in Munkfors with 3,300 inhabitants. Nearest city is Karlstad, to the south, at a distance of 45 minutes. It is one of the smallest by population in Sweden. The only other municipal town is Ransater. There is the Geijer-school, in honour of author Erik Gustaf Geijer from 1783 to 1843 who was born at the Ransater farm in the town. A second notable Ransater native was Tage Erlander from 1901 to 1985, who was the Prime Minister of Sweden from 1946 to1969. The municipality has one sister city known as Lindsborg, Kansas.
The Kingdom of Sweden is a Nordic country in Scandinavia. It is bordered by Norway in the west, Finland in the northeast, the Skagerrak Strait and the Kattegat Strait in the southwest and the Baltic Sea and the Gulf of Bothnia in the east. It is connected to Denmark in the southwest by the Oresund Bridge.
Like some of its sister municipalities and towns, Munkfors is blessed with beautiful surroundings and a unique natural setting. The picturesque scenery, the majesty of nature, the slow pace of life, and the welcoming nature of its people all combine to make this region one of the most important tourist attractions in Europe.
