is located in the northern part of Europe with an area of
about 450,000 sq.km, ranging 1.574 km from north to south
and with a majestic coastline of no less than 2.700 km
reaching from the Finnish border in the northeast to the
Norwegian in the southeast.
The area is roughly the size of California or Spain and
twice that of the United Kingdom and the third largest in
Western Europe. Although Sweden is the largest country among
the Nordic countries, there is only about nine million
inhabitants so there is plenty of space for everyone! In the
far south is Skåne, Sweden’s richest farming region, with
endless plains, gently rolling hills, long sandy beaches,
soughing groves and blazing meadows.

the new Øresund Region with around 3.5 million inhabitants.

Right next to Malmö there is the ancient university city of
Lund. When the university was founded in 1666 there had
already been a rich tradition of knowledge in Lund. As long
ago as the year 1085, a Cathedral School for the education
of priests was started.

and higher education in Scandinavia with seven faculties,
science centres and special university colleges. More than

many different parts. More than one in four residents in the
city are of foreign origin and speak some 100 languages and

of old and new. Malmö was given municipal privileges in
1352. In those days, Malmö was a part of Denmark and the
inhabitants were fisherman and farmers.
The region of Skåne (Scania), to which Malmö belongs, did
not become a part of Sweden until 1658. The modern
development of the city dates from the late 18th century,
when a proper harbour was constructed in Malmö. Since then
the city has been growing constantly.
