Sweden: Malmö as Pulsing Artery of Scandinavia

Published: 27.3.2013
One of the most important Swedish cities is located on the shore of the Baltic Sea – it is Malmö a pulsing artery of Scandinavia, an unusual Swedish city with Danish influence or just a pile of gravel, as locals like to call it.

MalmöIt boasts with the title as the third largest city in Sweden, it is an important traffic crossroads since it is a neighbor of the gigantic Öresund bridge that connects the shores of Sweden with Denmark’s. It’s a two-story bridge, the first floor is dedicated to car traffic, the second to train transportation.

The city of Malmö itself is very pleasant place with very nice streets and the highest skyscraper in Scandinavia Turning Torso named after its shape evoking turning human body. The architect intended people to think of a standing man when looking at the building. It consists of nine cubes each with 5 floors. The building gives a great pleasure not only of a view over the city and the Öresund bridge but also over local landscape. It is situated near a beach on the shore with huge stones lining it. It is nice just to sit there and enjoy unique atmosphere of the sea. Despite the fact a temperature of water is low even during summer local young men enjoy jumping into it from wharfs.

The fastest way how to explore this city is a cruise around a circle canal. The canal flows across the historic center and behind it branches off into several moats. The oldest square Stora is located in Old Town. Historic houses decorate its streets where vegetable fairs take place every Sunday as well as flea markets that attract visitors from neighboring towns. Stands with products of artistic craftsmen are located at the adjacent Lilla Torget square.

Nominally, at least. The most expensive part of our journey is travelling itself (had you your own food from the Czech Republic). However, there are many train and bus lines in the country.

Eighteen kilogram backpack on our backs were bent me and Dominika down at a station. We were looking forward to Swedish dream, a month worth of travelling on our own. A yellow bus was the means of our transport from Brno to Göteborg. After almost 20 hours of comfortable ride we got off the bus to see seagulls, ferry two ferry boats and cranes idling at the port. Visitor centers were buoys giving us always necessary information in the Swede’s second largest city. The first thing we actually did there was a visit at one such a center. Maps, leaflets, information – this is tourist’s fodder. One even doesn’t realize how remote is the land he trod on. Especially when passersby smile at him/her when he/she asks for directions. The smiles were still there regardless where we were.
