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!
