All roads in the gorgeous province of Skåne in southern Sweden lead to Malmö. The city is part of the expanding Öresund region and is joined to Copenhagen in Denmark by the mighty, arching Öresund bridge. National Geographic Travel has named Malmö one of its Best Trips 2018!

Malmö in brief

For all the expansion, Malmö is a small, friendly city with a good choice of cultural attractions, including the new Moderna Museet Malmö. Look out for Malmö’s many quality restaurants and bistros and great cafés. And the shopping isn’t bad either, especially if you’re looking for Swedish design-ware and hip, new Swedish fashion labels.

Malmö's skyline changed drastically in 2005 with the completion of skyscraper Turning Torso, a neo-futurist residential skyscraper which is the tallest building in Scandinavia. The tower reaches a height of 190 metres with 54 storeys and 147 apartments.
