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 Vatera is a Swedish municipality in Vastmanland County in central Sweden. Its seat is located in Vasteras, where also most of the population lives. Its area is 962.8 square kilometers. Vasteras is one of Sweden's oldest cities. Skultuna is situated about 13 kilometers north of central Västerås. It evolved around Skultuna brass works, established in 1607 by Charles IX of Sweden. Due to low profits, the brass works was closed in 2005, and its 6 remaining employees were let go; it will now be turned into a museum. Hokasen is located about 10 kilometers from central Vasteras. It began as a community of summer cottages, but has now evolved into a suburb.

Today, one can also learn about its history, from its earliest times and gain enthusiasm in its natural beauty and populace. Vatera enjoys a very positive reputation with worldwide travelers. As it is often regarded as among the most beautiful parts of Europe, it is one of the most visited places amongst the most die-hard travelers the world over.
