Malmö is the city where I live and the place where I have grown up. Few cities are changing as fast as Malmö, Sweden´s 3rd largest city and Skåne's largest. In less then 2 decades, the city has transformed from a sleepy industrial city to a developing university city. All that has changed since the completion of Öresundsbron, the bridge that connects Malmö to Copenhagen, Denmark. Many exciting projects have been built, for example a train tunnel under the city, several new hotels and apartment buildings are under construction and many dated squares have been modernized. Malmö has a rich and long history and has been part of Denmark centuries ago.

The architecture spans from historical old buildings (in mixed styles)in the city center to failed 60s modernism in the outskirts and ultramodern architecture in Västra Hamnen, where you can find Turning Torso, the famous twisted tower that is Scandinavia's tallest building! Many of the city's most important historic buildings are located along the long pedestrian street (Södra Förstadsgatan/Södergatan) that goes through the whole city center. The most striking example of historic buildings are situated around Stortorget (the main square). Malmö is also famous for its beautiful parks with monuments, sculptures and fountains. 3 large parks are situated in or close to the city center, Pildammsparken, Slottsparken and Kungsparken. The landscape in and around Malmö is mostly very flat, there are very few hills in the city. Unfortunately the city suffers from large unemployment, increasing crime rates and segregation today, despite all the new development. And large parts of the city's outskirts consists of ugly commie blocks. But you won't find another city in Sweden with such a variety in architecture and lifestyle. At Möllevången and Lilla Torg the open-air restaurants are open all the year around. The Öresund (the Malmö-Copenhagen) area is the 2nd fastest growing in Europe. New photos of Malmö are added continously.
