Malmo is the third largest city in Sweden and the largest in the Scania region. This bustling port city is perched on the very southern tip of Sweden, with Denmark’s capital Copenhagen just across the Oresund bridge. The city was made famous by the cult crime TV series ’The Bridge’.
Top 5 Reasons to Visit Malmö
1. The Cosmopolitan Atmosphere
Around one third of the city’s population was born outside of Sweden, making it the country’s most cosmopolitan city and resulting in some exciting ethnic food and atmospheric bars and cafes.
2. The Beach Life
Visit in summer and enjoy swimming and sunbathing on the city’s Ribersborgsstranden beach.
Go to Stortorget Square and join one of the frequent walking tours of the city. The tours take around two hours and are free (you are expected to tip the guide.)
4. Relax in the Squares
The city center is built around three squares: Gustav Adolfs torg, Stortorget and Lilla torg. There is some good shopping here and there are sites such as Kockska Huset in the area. Lilla torg is great for hanging out in pavement bars and cafes.
5. Folkets Park
This is where the locals go to enjoy horse riding, sunbathing, picnics and the rides at the amusement park.
