A Glance of Malmo

Old City Hall

Lilla Torg

Cafe on a ship

Viking Boat


Turning Torso

During our week long stay in Copenhagen we took a trip over the Oresund bridge which is longest combined rail and road bridge in Europe. A very pleasant and comfortable journey in no time we reached Malmo, the third largest city in Sweden.

First of all we wondered around the city to get our bearings as you do on city visits, we saw lots of interesting design shops, which we all wanted to look at especially my mother.

For lunch we bought sandwiches from a supermarket and found a lovely park to sit and eat them, luckily near by there was a wonderful playground which kept Alessio happy for a while.

In the afternoon we took a boat cruise, it was nice to get a fresh breeze for a bit. The boat cruise took us to lots of places we would not have had time to walk there, Malmo being big port which is still active we heard lots of information about it.

We stopped for a glass of wine after the boat tour finished while deciding what we should do next, I wanted to see the Turning Torso building. So we began our walk to see it and it took a lot longer than we thought and it was very hot too. Finally we got to it and my father and I found it quite interesting, unlike my mother!

If you are in Copenhagen, it is well worth a trip to see this city, we did think about visiting more places in this part of Sweden, but decided to see more of Denmark.

Next year will be visiting Norway for the first time, I am really looking forward to that!
