Örebro County is a county or län in central Sweden. It borders the counties of Västra Götaland, Värmland, Dalarna, Västmanland, Södermanland and Östergötland, it is culturally divided into the hilly northern region of Bergslagen, where mining and metallurgic industry have been important since the Middle Ages, the southern Mälardalen of lakes and farms. Sweden's counties are administrative units, whereas the provinces of Sweden fit cultural and historical boundaries. Örebro County consists of the province of Närke, the western half of Västmanland and minor parts of eastern Värmland and northeastern Västergötland. Örebro County is named after its capital city, Örebro, which in 2010 was the sixth largest city of Sweden. Official 2010 numbers sourced in the localities section indicate that 38% of the county population is living in the city of Örebro alone. Örebro itself contains just as many inhabitants as the 23 other largest localities put together, has grown ever since the official statistics began in the late 1960s.
The county was named Värmland County until 1779 when Värmland County seceded. The main aim of the County Administrative Board is to fulfil the goals set in national politics by the Riksdag and the Government, to coordinate the interests of the county, to promote the development of the county, to establish regional goals and safeguard the due process of law in the handling of each case; the County Administrative Board is a Government Agency headed by a Governor. See List of Örebro Governors; the County Council of Örebro or Örebro läns landsting, appointed by the electorate of the county, is responsible for health care and public transportation. The southern Närke plain, the forested north and the highland to the west makes for a varying landscape. Örebro County has coastlines on two of them. Capital Örebro is alongside Hjälmaren, located inland along Svartån; the southern area of the county has a transitional climate between oceanic and continental, with warm summers and cold, variable winters.
Örebro has a July high of around 23 °C and winter highs around 0 °C with frosts being frequent from November to April. The proximity to the major lakes moderates winter temperatures somewhat, undermining the continental effects of its inland position; the northern areas of the county are cooler year-round. The summer temperatures on the Närke Plain are some of the warmest in all of Scandinavia and by extension Northern Europe. Örebro County is divided into 12 municipalities. The arms for the County of Örebro is a combination of the arms of Västmanland and Värmland; when it is shown with a royal crown it represents the County Administrative Board.

Continental climates have a significant annual variation in temperature. They tend to occur in the middle latitudes, where prevailing winds blow overland, temperatures are not moderated by bodies of water such as oceans or seas. Continental climates occur in the Northern Hemisphere, which has the kind of large landmasses on temperate latitudes required for this type of climate to develop. Most of northern and northeastern China and southeastern Europe and southeastern Canada, the central and upper eastern United States have this type of climate. In continental climates, precipitation tends to be moderate in amount, concentrated in the warmer months. Only a few areas—in the mountains of the Pacific Northwest of North America and in Iran, northern Iraq, adjacent Turkey, Afghanistan and Central Asia—show a winter maximum in precipitation. A portion of the annual precipitation falls as snowfall, snow remains on the ground for more than a month. Summers in continental climates can feature frequent hot temperatures.
The timing of intermediate spring-like or autumn-like temperatures in this zone vary depending on latitude and/or elevation. For example, spring may arrive as soon as early March in the southern parts of this zone or as late as May in the north. Annual precipitation in this zone is between 600 millimetres and 1,200 millimetres, most of it in the form of snow during winter, it has cold winters and warm summers. Most such areas fit Dwb. Dry summer continental climates exist in high altitude areas near Mediterranean climates. In some cases, the semi-arid climate classification of BSk can be considered to be continental as long as it has cold winters; the definition of this climate regarding temperature is as follows: the mean temperature of the coldest month must be below −3 °C and there must be at least four months whose mean temperatures are at or above 10 °C. Continental climates exist where cold air masses infiltrate during the winter and warm air masses form in summer under conditions of high sun and long days.
Places with continental climates are as a rule are either far from any moderating effect of oceans or are so situated that prevailing winds tend to head offshore. Such regions get quite warm in the summer, achieving temperatures characteristic of tropical climates but are colder than any other climates of similar latitude in the winter. In the Koppen climate system, these climates grade off toward temperate climates equator-ward where winters are less severe and semi-arid climates where precipitation becomes inadequate for tall-grass prairies. In Europe these climates may grade off into oceanic climates in which the influence of cool oceanic air masses is more marked toward the west; the subarctic climate, with cold and dry winters, but with at least one month above 10 °C, might be considered a sub-type of the continental climate. Canada: throughout much of Southern Canada from the Rocky Mountains to Atlantic Canada. Major cities: Whistler. Marie. While there are no major cities in South America that fall in to the classification of a continental climate, there are some remote places that have this climate.
Due to the influence of the Ocean, including cities such as Punta Arenas and Ushuaia, have an average winter temperature above 0°C, so are classified as an oceanic climate. Argentina: Moderately high elevations in the central Andes west of Mendoza, Argentina towards the Argentine Patagonia's internal areas (e.g.
Katrineholm is a locality and the seat of Katrineholm Municipality, Södermanland County, Sweden with 21,993 inhabitants in 2010. It is located in the inland of Södermanland and is the third largest urban area in the county after Eskilstuna and county seat Nyköping; the name Katrineholm comes from a ducal residence with this name, after Catherina Gyllenhorn who lived there. The settlement started growing when it became a railway junction connecting the railways Stockholm - Gothenburg), Stockholm - Malmö. In 1917 it is 1971 the seat of Katrineholm Municipality. Katrineholm used to have a strong industrial sector, with several multinational corporations such as Ericsson and Scania contributing to its economy, but in the 1990s some of these companies reduced their workforce in Katrineholm. Today, many residents work elsewhere in Stockholm, as the train connection between Katrineholm and other major cities is fast and comfortable. During the 1970s and 1980s the town bandy team was one of the best in the Swedish national league, winning the league 1969, 1970 and 1972.

Södertörn is a triangular peninsula and artificial island in eastern Södermanland, bordered by: Lake Mälaren and the inlet of Saltsjön to the north, Himmerfjärden and Hallsfjärden to the west and The Baltic Sea to the east and the south. The Södertälje Canal to the south west; this canal is man-made, so the area isn't separated from the mainland by nature. Since 2005, the whole of Södertörn has been included in Metropolitan Stockholm. Before that, the southern parts of the island, which lie within Nynäshamn Municipality, the western parts, which are in Södertälje Municipality, were – although in Stockholm County – not included in the metropolitan area; the northern areas of Södertörn are to a large extent made up of rift-valley countryside with high ground, either pine forest or bare. The long valleys of the south become level ground; the waters surrounding the area are either brackish water with poor salinity. The bedrock is entirely gneiss, its name derives from the Old Norse dialect word tor, meaning "broken rocky beaches", which cut deep into the coast of Södertörn.
The highest point on Södertörn is Tornberget in Haninge at 110.9 metres above sea level. It is located in Hanveden, a large area of coniferous forest south of Stockholm, whose eastern areas form the Tyresta National Park; the southernmost parts of Södertörn were connected to Stockholm in 1901, when the Nynäs Line was opened. The railway runs between Nynäshamn in the south and Älvsjö in the north, where it joins with the main southern railway. Botkyrka Haninge Huddinge Nacka Nynäshamn Salem Stockholm Södertälje TyresöAll these municipalities are located both in Stockholm County and the province Södermanland. Though incorrect, the two remaining municipalities to fulfil these criteria — Södertälje and Nykvarn — both located west of Södertälje Canal, are sometimes thought of as part of Södertörn.

Strängnäs Municipality is a municipality in Södermanland County in eastern Sweden, located by Lake Mälaren. Its seat is located in the city of Strängnäs; the present municipality was created in 1971, when the City of Strängnäs was amalgamated with the City of Mariefred and a number of rural municipalities. There were 15 local government entities in the area; the municipality consists of the old towns of Strängnäs and Mariefred and the villages of Åkers styckebruk and Stallarholmen. Strängnäs Mariefred Åkers styckebruk Stallarholmen Strängnäs is an old town with a history dating back to the Viking era, its location on the shores of Lake Mälaren has made Strängnäs an important trading centre and meeting place through the ages. Mariefred acquired its name from the monastery Pax Mariae, founded some 500 years ago by Sten Sture the Elder. There are no remains above ground of the monastery, the location where Mariefred's church, built in 1624, now stands. Strängnäs has a multifaceted and dynamic economy, being home to businesses of different sizes and in many different sectors.
The prominent industries are biotech, logistics, education and tourism. These are the results of the Riksdag elections of Strängnäs Municipality since the 1972 municipality reform; the results of the Sweden Democrats were not published by SCB between 1988 and 1998 at a municipal level to the party's small nationwide size at the time. Blocs This lists the relative strength of the socialist and centre-right blocs since 1973, but parties not elected to the Riksdag are inserted as "other", including the Sweden Democrats results from 1988 to 2006, but the Christian Democrats pre-1991 and the Greens in 1982, 1985 and 1991; the sources are identical to the table above. The coalition or government mandate marked in bold formed the government after the election. New Democracy got elected in 1991 but are still listed as "other" due to the short lifespan of the party. "Elected" is the total number of percentage points from the municipality that went to parties who were elected to the Riksdag. Strängnäs Municipality - Official site
