Once an isolated city on the southern tip of Sweden, Malmo is fast becoming a major multicultural center. With the completion of the Oresund Bridge in the year 2000 connecting Sweden to Denmark, Malmo is now only a 30 minute car or train ride from the center of Copenhagen.

With canals, beaches, and historical sites Malmo makes a wonderful day trip when you visit Copenhagen. Malmo is compact enough that you can walk to most of the major attractions directly from the train station. I spent an afternoon alone walking beside the canals and side streets of Malmo and then returned several days later with the other guy in the hat for a tour of the historical sites and parks.

    Thanks Larry for the virtual tour! We failed to visit Malmo downtown last August: it was raining all the day and we spent the evening in the hotel. Next morning we had to cross the Oresund. May be another time...

    I was last there 30 years ago. I remember the trip from Malmo to Copenhagen taking a lot longer that 35 minutes. The meloncholy guy looks like he fell on his nose.

    Lovely overview of Malmo. I hope to see the city on a day trip from Copenhagen in June. It's difficult to choose between it and Elsinore.

    Great page Larry! The crying statue is called "The Swedish Melancholy" and the lady who made it is married to a very famous and loved actor who is the model she used! He also does lots of comedy actually.

    You're very observant, upside down flags and a teary statue. Jeez, I didn't all of these when I was there.
