Malmö The Essential
Sweden's third-largest city, Malmö owes its success to its location opposite the Danish capital, on the other side of a 25km-wide strait, the Sound. Since the opening in 2000 of a bridge-tunnel linking it to Copenhagen, Malmö has experienced an unprecedented rise and been injected with a new energy, cosmopolitan and eclectic.
