Malmö and the history

Spread the love

Arriving in the city the modern buildings caught my attention, but  Malmö and the history are very well connected. Going around I saw some old constructions and elegant palaces. I asked and read about it, discovering that the origins, according to the books, come from 1275. In XV century the inhabitants built a new citadel and the castle. The population was quite limited in terms of numbers. It started to grow a lot in XX century, especially after the construction of a big shipyard, the largest in Europe, in XIX century.

That was the reason to call people from other cities and countries to work. Now Malmö counts more than 300.000 inhabitants, meanwhile the metropolitan area is made by 700.000 citizens. The city is active in culture field, infact there are a movie festivals and many theatre events. It is also famous for design and contemporary art. Visitors can find museums and centers dedicated to the art and to the desing. As I noticed, Malmö is a perfect place for innovation. It has an international setting, useful to unite people from different parts of the world and to help them to realize common projects and ideas.

Architecture

The oldest building visible now in the city are made in Gothic style, but the architecture of Malmö includes different examples. There is also Art Nouveau thanks to the sinagogue. The typical Nordic-scandinavian architecture is visible in Stortorget, the main square with the city all. The decorations of the buildings are rich, but without exaggeration. As it is in the northern Europe. I don’t want to annoy you more with notes about history and architecture. You can easily find more information online.
