Malmö, as krimson has quite rightly written, the third-largest city in Sweden, lies across the Öresund (Dn.: Øresund) from Copenhagen, in Denmark. Due to the proximity to the Danish capital it has become an incredibly vibrant, lively, and personal city. You can shuttle across the Öresund in less than an hour, and there has now been a bridge built across the sound, too (Europe's longest).

It was the chief city of the Malmöhus län (prefecture) -- Malmöhus län and Kristianstads län being merged to revive the old couny of Skåne -- and the nearest cities of interest are Trelleborg, to the south, and Lund, to the north.
