Malmö was founded in the first half of the 13th century and has listened to Denmark. In 1658 Malmö became Swedish from Denmark, but it took almost 200 years before integration became fruitful. As a industrial city, Malmö flourished until the shipbuilding industry struck out in the early 1970s, with relocation and failing self-confidence as a result. In recent years, Malmö has resided and reported.
In June 2000, the city was reunited with Denmark thanks to the Öresund Bridge. The broom exhibition last year finally opened the city towards the water and Europe’s highest – and perhaps most spectacular – residential building was built. Turning Torso travels over the old shipyard and attracts a lot of fascinated spectators. Around the University, the University and knowledge-intensive companies are fighting for the new office palace. The city has been rejuvenated and revitalized and the occupation is constantly striking new records.
In central Malmö there is Ribersborg, a two kilometer long sandy beach. Swim, jog or grill during the summer months. During the winter months, the cozy sauna of the Kallbadhus is heated after the winter break!
Malmö parks are a natural feature of the city’s environment. Kungsparken and Slottssparken are a guided excursion for picnics and walks. Pildammsparken offers large open spaces and two large lakes that attract a rich bird life.
Möllevångstorget with its open market offers stands where you can find the lively square market. During the evening, Möllan, which is called the square, is one of the hottest meeting places in Malmö. For those hungry there is a wide range of restaurants that attract smells from all over the world’s kitchen. For those who are at the party crowd there are several clubs with a wide range of music that surround Möllevången. KB, Babel, Debaser, the Moravian Pavilion and the Cuba Café are some well-known examples.
Malmö has a rich cultural life with performances, galleries and museums. In recent years, Malmö has built two major venues, Malmö Arena and Swedbank Stadium, both of which focus on major public events, and of course sport! It is easy to get to the venues by bus and train.
Malmö offers proximity to Copenhagen and the Öresund bridge boasts between the two cities. It is one of the largest buildings in Europe, and it takes less than 15 minutes to cross the 8 kilometer long bridge. The communications are good, it goes by train every twentieth minute, daytime, every day. Visit Tivoli during the day and then shop in the Danish city. The proximity to Copenhagen is even more apparent since the City Tunnel was opened in December 2010.
Welcome to Malmö!
