Malmö is the first city in Sweden after the border with Denmark, which makes it a good round-trip destination from the Danish capital, Copenhagen. It’s easy and fast to get there (through the Øresund Bridge), and that facilitates the life of the tourist who wants to explore a little bit of both countries in the same trip.
The city is the commercial center of southern Sweden, it has a modern vibe. Some of the historic buildings have disappeared with the development, but you can still find many old sites dating back to the 13th, 14th and 15th centuries. I spent only one afternoon there, but with the time I had available, I saw a little of both sides of the city, the modern and the historic.
I visited Malmö in July, during the European summer, when the temperatures are higher than the rest of the year. But I guess sun and heat are not good words to define the Scandinavian countries, my day was chilly and the sky was cloudy. But that’s ok, part of the charm. It was very worth to explore a bit of Sweden, even with a short time.
