Southern part of Sweden
Whilst travelling south within Sweden one can really notice that one is getting closer and closer to the continent. Once reaching Malmo it feels almost like going abroad. Under the “Main cities” you can find more information about Malmo. One thing to point out about Malmo is that if you are looking for a big city on the move, Malmo is a sure thing. Here you also have close and easy access to Denmark and Copenhagen.
In the Southern part of Sweden there is a selection of pleasant cities and towns to visit. Below you can find more detailed information about some of them; Boras, Jonkoping, Vaxjo, Kalmar, Helsingborg and Visby. All of which have so much to offer tourists that it is difficult to name only one or two main tourist attractions in the Southern part of Sweden.
The fabulous “Knallelandet” can be found in Boras. “Knallelandet” is a huge area with hundreds of shops, where one can spend the whole vacation. There is so much to do here that several days are needed in order to manage to experience all. Many travel with caravans and camp in the nearby camping. Once here it is time for shopping, shopping and then some more shopping. Here are big famous chains of clothing stores mixed with small special stores. If you need a break from all the shopping, then why not visit Boras Zoo that is situated basically next door. Here you can experience a real safari, travelling through the enormous zoo in a jeep. It is very fascinating watching the “wild” animals within their enclosure.
Just outside Jonkoping you can find the little town of ”peppermint rock” (in Swedish: polkagris), Granna. This is a picturesque town where you can find the ferry to Visingso. Visingso is the largest island in the big lake Vattern and incredible beautiful. Definitely a destination to book a day’s journey to whilst visiting Jonkoping.
For most people Helsingborg is only a place where you wait for the ferry to take you over to Denmark and on to Europe. But it is definitely worth spending some time discovering Helsingborg. In the summer the coast line in the city attracts many people to the beautiful beaches for sunbathing and swimming. During a warm summers day Helsingborg is a great place to visit as a beach resort. The main attraction in Helsingborg is the castle Sofiero. Here you can stroll around admiring the beautiful garden of the castle. For golfers, Helsingborg is a paradise. Here you can find a number of golf courts of highest quality.
