Malmö is a young, vibrant and welcoming place with an international atmosphere. The city centre is as idyllic as it is convenient, with everything within easy walking distance. And with residents from more than 170 countries and half of the locals being younger than 35, Malmö offers plenty of new experiences at hand whether you are looking for restaurants, shopping or nightlife.

Sweden's third largest city has a long tradition of hosting international sports events and creating the right atmosphere for them. Visitors have the opportunity to experience two countries in a single visit, since Malmö is connected to the Danish capital Copenhagen which is just half an hour away via the majestic Öresund bridge.
