Malmö as a city began to emerge as early as the 13th century and is thus over 800 years old. The word Malmö means "sand piles" and the city has come to get its name as it grew on a beach reef that today is the most central neighborhood. The oldest preserved structure is the central tunnel complex built in the 1300s. In addition, some houses still remain in the center from the 14th and 16th centuries and Malmöhus castle from 1526.
Malmö has historically been important for Swedish trade - something that is very much the case even today. The city's proximity to Copenhagen and the rest of Europe has contributed to the fact that today it is the country's fastest growing metropolis. Home to beautiful parks, long coastal strips, and a plethora of restaurants and outdoor restaurants makes Malmö become as attractive to private individuals as to businesses.
In addition to the city's own attractions and activities, you can take a 20-minute train journey across the Öresund Bridge and thus also take part in the offer that the second largest city in the Nordic region offers. As a student city, Malmö has long been in the shadow of the neighboring city of Lund, but when the university status now granted car white from 2018, the Skåne capital suddenly has a significantly higher attractiveness than before. Thus, the city hopes to attract more students from around the country than before when the majority came from Skåne.
