"Where the future faces the past" Malmö by csordila
Malmö Travel Guide: 460 reviews and 1,012 photos
The new landmark of Malmo, the Turning Torso with its 190.4 meters is the tallest skyscraper in Sweden.
This is really an interesting building to see, the concrete and steel tower consisting of nine cubes on top of each other is torqued, or twisted, through 90 degrees from top to bottom. The skyscraper is symbolizing a man twisting his torso to behold the world.
It lies quite far from the downtown, in an industrial area that is under redevelopment - hence the high profile building.
On the rear of the 20 SEK is an illustration of the Nobel Prize-winning Swedish author, Selma Lagerlöf's famous story of Nils Holgersson, who astride on the giant goose tours around his homeland.
This tale was Lagerlöf's fulfillment of a commission from the Swedish government for a story to introduce the geography and culture of the country to children. The story was a standard part of the curriculum of the Swedish public schools for many years.
While this is no longer the case, it remains one of the best-known and loved works of Swedish literature.
