LUND, SWEDEN

TRAVEL DATE - July 2012
STAY @ Tivoli hotel, Arni Magnussons Gade 2  1577 København, Denmark


I wanted to get the glimpse of Swedish life, while I was staying in Copenhagen. The best option was to go Malmö and Lund in morning and comeback in late night. I took morning train to Lund from copenhagen central station. Sweden is not far from Copenhagen, you just need to cross famous Øresund Bridge. This bridged is one of engineering marvel and I could see  one of worlds biggest wind farm while crossing it.

Lund was less crowded than Copenhagen. I was able to find the tourist office after asking few Swedish. Tourist office was in Stortorget square, very near to railway station.Lady on the reception gave me free map suggest me to walk around and see cathedral, university and botanical garden. It was sunny day and seems everyone was in holiday mood.
