On July 1, 2000, a bridge was inaugurated, but it was not just any bridge, it was the Oresund Bridge linking the two nations of Denmark and Sweden together. Two former enemies are now one. Two people and two cultures are now very close to each other and formed the new area of Oresund Region. A short drive and a crossing of the 7.4 mile bridge and tunnel and you are in Sweden, the second of the four countries in Scandinavia. Pass by Malmö and drive through the flat farmland up to Lund – a town with long historical traditions. Once (when under the Danish flag) Lund was the home of the bishop for Scania. It is now a town with a large university and many international students come to study here. Visit the imposing cathedral. Watch, especially, the advanced astronomic clock on the wall (closed during services). Drive south to the city of Malmö, the third largest city of Sweden, with 300,000 inhabitants. In the Medieval City Center, you will stroll through history admiring the charming old 17th century houses, cross small squares and cobblestone streets. You’ll have 30 minutes of free time for shopping. (i.e., the Swedish handicraft shops and other small shops in the area).
Guests need to bring their passports. At the cathedral, the tour guide will give commentary outside and guests will then visit the cathedral individually. Cathedral may be closed on short notice in case religious services are taking place. The sequence of stops may vary by tour.
