SWEDEN WITH KIDS: LUND
Last August we travelled from Denmark to Sweden. We crossed the Öresund Bridge that connects both countries and headed to Scania, the southernmost province in Sweden. We visited Mälmo and Lund, two beautiful cities of this region, known for its agriculture and heritage.
It was my first time in Sweden and I fell in love with the city of Lund: a quiet and charming old city (the second oldest in Sweden) full of markets, cozy cafés and ancient buildings.
Lund is internationally renowned for its medieval university and it seems that this university is the top choice in Sweden for international applicants.
Must-see sights in Lund include the beautiful Cathedral (Sweden’s most visited church), the botanical gardens (8 hectares of gardens that are free to visit and open every day), and the amazing Kulturen (the Museum of Cultural History).
Lund combines historic buildings with contemporary architecture. The Domkyrkoforum (Cathedral Forum) by Spanish architect Carmen Izquierdo is really stunning.
Here are some other photos of our visit, if you’d like to see.
