The tallest residential building in the Nordic countries, the Turning Torso located in the modern Western Harbour of Malmö, is the city's symbol. Malmö is separated from Copenhagen by only a small stretch of water, so travelling to the Danish capital only requires a short trip by car or train across the Öresund Bridge. With several daily departures by Finnlines, Malmö also has good connections to Travemünde in Germany. Malmö is one of the greenest citiesin Europe. By 2030, the whole city is set to be powered by renewable energy. This development can already be seen in the districts of Hyllie and Western Harbour. Modern meets traditional architecture when you walk among the world-famous half-timbered houses of Malmö's old town.
With over 400 kilometres of cycle paths and vast park areas like the Pildammsparken, Malmö is also a top destination for cycling enthusiasts in the summer. Staying active is easy in the winter too, with free ice skating in Raoul Wallenbergs Park. There's fun for the whole family at Malmö Folkets Park, Sweden's oldest public musement park (Norra Parkgatan 2a). Gothenburg is the west coast's answer to Stockholm, the Swedish capital. It is Sweden's second largest city, so it has it all: high-quality cultural resources, excellent restaurants and good connections to a number of picturesque islands.
