Life in Lund IV – Malmö ❤

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

HELLO!

Malmo is a bigger and busier town about twenty minutes by train away from Lund, and we’ve made our way there several times in the past month to  explore (and do some serious  shopping), including one school excursion trip to the Malmo Castle and history museum!

 We went to the history museum first, as we were the second group to tour the castle. The museum is pretty small, with modest exhibitions that would probably last you an hour or two if you are really interested to examine each item slowly and read their descriptions but we only spent about fourty minutes in there before our castle tour!

I love this candid of me when I got surprised when it really started to move. Definitely not for people who easily get motion sickness though.

We went into the submarine and it was sooo small and tight I can’t imagine how the navy guys had to live in this submarine?!

Even I had a hard time passing through the hole to next area!

Then we moved on to the Malmo castle, which is pretty underwhelming because you would imagine castles to be well, grander.

But the Malmo castle is simple and pragmatic, being burnt and then reconstructed after a civil war.

We had the pleasure of having the residing archaeologist as our tour curator so we got to learn a lot of interesting history about the castle!

*I wouldn’t recommend going for the Malmo excursion unless you haven’t been to IKEA previously, we had been and had little to do there at the IKEA pit stop!

Shopping street after the town square!

Had to stop for tea break in Espresso House (the Swedish Starbucks) because the snow got a little too heavy!

LOVE all the lifestyle and houseware shops they have here in Sweden! Everything looks so pretty! I would totally buy them for my own room, if I were to stay here long term.

Shopped all the way till Triangeln (the next train stop)! You can read more about my shopping adventures in my previous post.

Even at night Malmo is gorgeous!

Got another treat because it snowed when we went back to Lund. Spammed pictures during our cooold 20 minute wait for our train.
