Malmo

Sweden's third major city has prospered thanks to its role as major area of trade. It is southern Sweden's largest town with 270, 000 people and is located adjacent the Øresund Strait. From a historical point of view, it has proved to be an important area in both trade and defence. Stone structures from the Middle Ages, such as Malmö castle (Malmö hus), are still standing, and the city is full of history and sightseeing spots.

With the opening of the Øresund Bridge connecting the area with neighbouring Demark, it is expected to become an even more important point for transportation.
