Malmö is a city which grew up in stages and it is clear to see how the city is divided. Like the Midgard Serpent from Norse mythology which bites its own tail, the city's canals ring around the Medieval centre where you'll find historic buildings, cosy terraces and cobblestone streets lined with cute little shops. Farther north, you'll find the old harbour areas where shipyards, shipping companies and industry bear witness to their ancient presence through the materials and architectural styles found in this now up-and-coming district.

    South of the old town is the lively inner city from Malmö's expansion during the age of industrialisation. Here you'll find shopping, parks and restaurants. Even farther south still is where the city begins to fragment, with lots of green spaces as well as huge shopping and entertainment complexes too big for the city centre.
