 Day 6: Malmö sightseeing

 

During June to beginning of August, we have Malmö sightseeing. Sightseeing starts with visit to the tallest building in Scandinavian the famous The Turning Torso a marvel of modern architecture and residential buildings. The equestrian statue of King Karl X Gustav, who took Skåne from the Danes through the Roskilde Treaty of 1658, stands in the midst of the largest square in Malmö. Stortorget became Malmö's new marketplace and was the largest city square in Northern Europe for a very long time. Kockska huset, one of the most well-preserved 16th century buildings in Malmö, is of red brick with a richly ornamented stepped gable. The City Hall, finished in 1546, has undergone major changes over the centuries. In the 1860s, Helgo Zettervall redesigned the façade in the Dutch Renaissance style, much of which remains today. The Residence, the pale stuccoed building next to the City Hall, is now the home of the County Governor. The present façade dating from the 1850s was built in 17th century Renaissance style by one of the most prominent architects of the day, F.W. Scholander. After a visit to the Malmö Slott, Lilla Torget, you may also visit Folkets Park which was opened in 1893 and has always been a popular park and entertainment venue for the people of Malmö.

Day 7: Copenhagen sightseeing

The lovely city of Copenhagen, is the capital of Denmark. Copenhagen got its name from the word "köbenhavn", which means "Merchants harbour". It is a captivating, friendly city where there is always something wonderful around the next corner - to see, smell, taste, feel or listen to. There are the royal castles, the parks, the squares and the plazas, and not least, like a precious gem, Nyhavn, the New Harbour. Discover the architecture and museums which are famous all over the world. We recommend you to start by visiting the Town Hall a good place to start exploration in any direction. Noble statues stand at its entry, on its roof and inside, where, among others, the writer Hans Christian Andersen and the Nobel Prize-winning physicist Niels Bohr are honored. We visit Jens Olsen's World Clock, with its exact calibration, in the lower portion of the Town Hall Tower. Ny Carlsberg Glyptotek Houses both a stunning classical collection and, somewhat incongruously, an assemblage of Danish impressionist and postimpressionist art. The building itself is a work of art and merits a visit (the central palm garden with murmuring fountains was cleverly designed to offer museum visitors a place to relax). We also visit Ronsenborg Palace and the Royal Reception Rooms and let's not forget The Little Mermaid, inspired by Hans Christian Andersen's fairytale. The statue of the "Little Mermaid" is a favourite with most visitors.
