Outside Linköping – One day in Lund

After spending a few days in Malmö, I went to Lund, a small student city located only 20 minutes away by train. Lund is famous for its great student life with nations, and its cathedral.

I begun my day by walking around the city and the botanical garden. It was very pleasant despite the rainy weather! Then, I visited the cathedral and walked again around the city. I did not have much time since I had to take my train back to Linköping in the evening but one day was more than enough to visit Lund in my opinion!

Here are some pictures:

I will end this post by saying that it’s the end of the blogging adventure for me — at least for this year. Everything went very well in Linköping, from my studies to my student life and I can only recommend to study in this city. Plus, Sweden is a wonderful country! Hejdå 😉

Outside Linköping – My trip to Malmö

It’s been a long time I wrote on this blog. I have been very busy with my thesis defence, starting to say goodbye and… my trip to Malmö. Malmö is a city located in the south Swedish region of Skåne. It is linked to Copenhagen in Denmark by a long bridge which has been the topic of the famous series, The Bridge. I had never been there and I really wanted to visit Malmö before leaving… So, I did.

I took me three hours by train to reach Malmö. I spent three whole days in the city which was plenty of time! Main attractions include the Castle, Turning Torso and museums, such as the Art Gallery and the Modern Art Museum. But what’s good about Malmö is that you can just wander around the city and take time to visit each and every island.

My favorite place was the castle : it is a place full of history. It was successively used as a forteresse, a prison, a refugee camp and now it has been made into a museum. There you can enjoy natural science, modern art, and historical exhibitions. Plus, the price is very low: only 20kr for students!

Malmö is also a very cosmopolite city due to its location near the sea and connected to Denmark. This influenced the food and what you should do in Malmö is eating falafels. It is said the city has one of the best in Sweden!
