As I was in Scandinavia, I wanted to visit another country nearby. So I decided to go to Sweden. Malmo is a small city connected to Copenhagen by a wonderful bridge which is half on and half under the see. In this way in took just under 40 minutes to go from Denmark to Sweden. The first place I visited in Malmö was Malmöhus , a supper old castle which was used as a museum now. The price to enter the building was 20 sdk which just showed me the sign of the cheaper prices in Sweden from the beginning. As you can see in the photos below, it consisted of different parts as animal museum, art museum and even the part which was an exhibition of fashion and clothing in the past and the historical parts.

Meatballs with a special cream sauce and mashed potatoes with lingonberries as seen in the photo below was the food I tried in Bullen restaurant which was famous for serving Swedish food. It was a little expensive but for sure worth trying.

Another interesting part of the city was a tower called turning torso which I was told by the hotel receptionist tha is the tallest building in Sweden.

Visiting Malmö was just as interesting as visiting other cities in Denmark. The people were friendly, it was quite cold, it had a very beautiful city center to walk in and the prices were high but lower than Denmark. And another main similarity was that you could see modernity and tradition at the same time as shown perfectly in the main library of the city.
