Sightseeing in Malmo - what to see. Complete travel guide

Malmo is not only an important port, but also the third largest city in Sweden, which is located on the south of the country in the picturesque region of Scania. Malmo is the capital of the region. In XIII century Malmo was a small port town that prospered thanks to fishing and selling salt herring. For a long time this place was part of Denmark. However, due to constant confrontations from the side of the residents of Malmo and bloody wars, Sweden and Denmark signed a peace treaty in 1658. According to this document Malmo joined the territory of Sweden.

The small Caroli Church is also a notable city attraction. The main material used in its construction was red bricks. Since the construction of the church, high narrow windows, miniature turrets along the perimeter of the building, as well as many elements of primeval interior decoration have been successfully preserved. Now the old church is surrounded by contemporary buildings, so it looks very unusual against such background.
Nearby is the St. Peter’s Church, which also makes an amazing contrast with the modern buildings of Malmö. It was founded in the 14th century. From the moment of construction, unique frescoes, created by famous medieval painters were preserved within the walls of the church. One of the main features of the external appearance of the church is the ancient chapel, which was annexed to it as far back as 1442.

In 1872, King Oscar ordered the founding of the beautiful park for the citizens on the territory of the old destroyed cemetery.

Every year, huge sums are invested in the landscape design of the park. Here, you can walk among the most beautiful ornamental plants and flower beds, and admire the ancient fountains and sculptures.
One of the oldest buildings in the city is the House of the Rosenvinge Family, built in 1534. For several hundred years, this house belonged to one family.

The House of Niels Kantze is preserved in Malmö. It was built by the mayor of the city in 1530 for his daughter Anna. Several windows of this house faced the historic Östergatan Street, so the merchants could offer residents of the houses their goods directly through the windows. In the old house, there is also a beautiful old finish, and underground rooms that were used as warehouses.
