South Sweden

Haunted places at the Baltic Sea.

"The south of Sweden offers great swimming at islands in the Baltic Sea and pretty little towns. Idyllic town on the Vättern lake, historical fishing villages on the Baltic Sea, traditional working-class and university towns as well as the two largest islands of the country – the south of Sweden is a very diversified area. Småland and Schonen are some of the best known landscapes of Sweden. It’s recommended to come into the country by car or train from Denmark via the new Öresund bridge and stop on every corner. The old working-class town of Malmö has experienced a new economical upswing since opening of the bridge in 2000 – many Danes move here because the cost of living is lower but the quality of living higher than in their capital. The cathedral- and university town of Lunden in the southern province of
Skåne (Schonen) has many historical buildings and a pulsating student life. Thanks to the Swedish writer Astrid Lindgren, Småland is the best known region of Sweden. A tour of this landscape is like riding on a harvester with the children of Bullerbü. There are two islands in front of Smålands’ eastern coast - Öland and Gotland. They are the most popular islands in the summer but almost empty in spring and fall. Then Öland and Gotland are places of tranquility.
