Malmö, Sweden

Malmö is the third largest city in Sweden and was one of the earliest and most industrialized towns of Scandinavia. Since the construction of the Øresund Bridge, Malmö has undergone a major transition from being an industrial city to a city of knowledge with futuristic architectural developments. It is the commercial centre of southern Sweden and an international city, that has about 300,000 residents of 170 different nationalities.

The area has also been called a milestone in Swedish architecture. It offers a combination of historic sites standing alongside urban structure and new modernist architecture. The Malmöhus Castle is the oldest preserved renaissance castle in the Nordic region built in the 16th century on behalf of the Danish King Christian III. The St Peter's Church is another historic pride of Malmö built in the 14th century and is a Gothic, three-naved brick church with a 96 metre high tower.

Home to Scandinavia's tallest building, beautiful parks, edgy contemporary museums and some seriously good cuisine, the opening of the Öresund bridge in 2000 has also been an undeniably positive factor for Malmö, connecting it to bigger cooler Copenhagen and creating a dynamic new urban conglomeration.
