one of Sweden's most exciting cities by Andrew Regan
As the third largest city
in Sweden, Malmo is a popular place to visit in Scandinavia. The city is
one of the region's earliest industrial towns; however, the age of post-industrialism
has seen Malmo transformed from a hub of manufacturing into a large university
town which boasts an impressive world of arts, education and culture.
|If you're visiting Malmo
and you want to see the city's most interesting sights, why not visit Malmohus
Castle? Located to the west of Malmo's old city, this building was first
built in 1437 by Erik of Pomerania, before being inhabited by the kings
of Denmark in the 1500s and used as a prison until 1914.
Today, it is a history and
art museum, as well as an aquarium and a terrarium that attracts a range
Additionally, when you're
in Malmo, make sure you visit the Mollevangstorget Square, located south
of the city centre and which plays host to an open-air market every weekend.
Malmo's newest landmark - the Turning Torso - is well worth a visit too.
Completed in 2005, Malmo's
Turning Torso is, at 190m tall, the tallest building in Scandinavia and
is visible from almost any part of the city. It even has a waterfront promenade
and a state-of-the-art skate park.
Malmo's cultural attractions
will also be of interest to any tourist in the city, whether you pride
yourself on being an active culture vulture or you're merely looking for
interesting things to do in Malmo.
|The Municipal Theatre, for
instance, was inaugurated in 1944 and began as a repertory; however, during
the 1950s, legendary Swedish filmmaker Ingmar Bergman became its Director
and Chief Stage Director and made the institution the site of one of the
most important art scenes in the whole of Sweden. Today, the theatre showcases
all forms of stage performance, from ballet to opera, and musical recitals
to diverse theatrical experiments.
Furthermore, since the 1970s
Malmo has also played host to a diversity of musical scenes and talents.
Malmo has a long history of rock, dance and dub music, and recent musicians
to have played in the city include the likes of B.B. King, Morrissey and
Australian signer-songwriter Nick Cave.
If you're planning to visit
Malmo, you'll find plenty of hotels in Malmo, from which you'll be able
to enjoy all that this exciting city has to offer. Take a trip to Malmo
for a Scandinavian city adventure with a difference - you won't be disappointed!
