  Malmö is located in the southernmost province of Scania,  Sweden's third largest city by population after Stockholm and Gothenburg, and is one of the largest cities in Scandinavia.

Malmö was one of the earliest and most industrialized towns of Scandinavia, but it struggled with the adaptation to post-industrialism. Since the construction of the Öresund bridge, Malmö has undergone a major transformation with impressive architectural developments, attracting new biotech and IT companies, and particularly students through Malmö University.  The city contains many historic buildings and parks, and is also a commercial centre for the western part of Scania. During the last few years a university has been established and the city is now trying to focus on education, arts and culture.

 There are movements for considering Malmö as part of the Copenhagen metropolitan area or an even larger metropolitan area, which would be called Öresundsregionen in Swedish and Øresundsregionen in Danish, since it would consist of all the towns around the Sound.



 Lund a city in the province of Scania, southern Sweden. It is the seat of Lund Municipality, Skåne County. The city is believed to have been founded around 990, when Scania belonged to Denmark. It soon became a major Christian center of the Baltic Sea region, at a time when the area was still a frontier area for Christian mission, and within Scandinavia and especially Denmark through the Middle Ages. From 1103 it was the seat of anarchbishop. At the center of the city stands the towering Lund Cathedral, built ca 1090-1145. 

During the 12th and 13th centuries, when the town was the seat of the archbishop, many churches and monasteries were built. At its peak, Lund had 27 churches, but most of them were demolished as result of the Reformation in 1536.    Several medieval buildings remain, including Lund Cathedral, Liberiet, the restaurant Stäket and parts of the Cathedral School. Timber framing is characteristic of the houses built up to the end of the 19th century, for example Wickmanska gården.

Most of the central buildings in Lund date from the late 19th century, when small houses were replaced by multi-storey ones. Notable buildings built during this period include the University Library (1902), Grand Hotel (1899) and the University Main Building (1882).


Copenhagen is the capital of Denmark and its most populous city, with an urban population of 1,213,822 (as of 1 January 2012) and a metropolitan population of 1,950,522 (as of 1 January 2013). Copenhagen is situated on the eastern coast of Zealand and stretches across part of Amager. A number of bridges and tunnels connect the parts of the city together, and the cityscape is characterized by promenades and waterfronts.
Originally a Viking fishing village founded in the 10th century, Copenhagen became the capital of Denmark in the beginning of the 15th century. During the 17th century, under the reign of Christian IV, it became a significant regional centre. Since the turn of the millennium, Copenhagen has seen a strong urban and cultural development, partly due to massive investments in cultural facilities and infrastructure. Since the completion of the transnational Øresund Bridge in 2000, Copenhagen has become increasingly integrated together with the Swedish city of Malmö, growing into a combined metropolitan area, known as the Øresund Region. 
Copenhagen is the cultural, economic and governmental centre of Denmark; it houses various economic sectors. It is an important centre for maritime industries and maritime trade in Europe, offering marine transportation and shipping lanes in both the North Sea and the Baltic Sea. Copenhagen is among the financial centres of Northern Europe with the Copenhagen Stock Exchange and home of many companies such as Maersk, Carlsberg Group and Novo Nordisk. Copenhagen has 89,000 students enrolled in its educational institutions.
Copenhagen is a green city with many big and small parks. King's Garden, the garden of  Rosenborg Castle, is the oldest and most visited park in Copenhagen. Its landscaping was commenced by Christian IV in 1606. Every year it sees more than 2.5 million visitors and in the summer months it is packed with sunbathers, picnickers and ballplayers. It serves as a sculpture garden with a permanent display of sculptures as well as temporary exhibits during summer.


Helsingborg is a town and the seat of Helsingborg Municipality, Skåne County, Sweden. It had 97,122 inhabitants in 2010. Helsingborg is the centre of an area in the Øresund region of about 320,000 inhabitants in north-west Scania, and is Sweden's closest point to Denmark, with the Danish city Helsingør clearly visible on the other side of the Øresund about 4 km to the west. 
Between 1912 and 1971 the name of the town was officially spelled Hälsingborg.
Historic Helsingborg, with its many old buildings, is a scenic coastal city. The buildings are a blend of old-style stone-built churches and a medieval fortress (Kärnan) in the city centre, which has stood guard in Helsingborg for over 600 years, and more modern commercial buildings. The streets vary from wide avenues to small alley-ways. Kullagatan, the main pedestrian shopping street in the city, was the first pedestrian shopping street in Sweden.

After lunch along the coast, passing fishing village of Old Viken with its half-timered houses. Höganäs is the center of Sweden's pottery industry. We make a stop at the old pottery factory, now Höganäs farmer's market, to see how a former industry building could be transformed into a modern market hall,

We continue to Mölle situated at the entrance of Kullaberg, a beautiful nature reserve of ravines, steep cliffs and a wide variety of vegetation. At Kullen, see the lighthouse signaling the entrance to Öresund.
