Lund: a cute historical city

Lund is a small student city located close to Malmö. It is old but rich in history and it gives its streets a unique vibe. There isn’t much to do but walk around and enjoy the beautiful architecture, but it still ended up being one of my favorite places in Skåne.

Dating back to 1145, the Lund Cathedral stands out in the main square of the city. A quick tour allows you to travel back in time before exploring more of the city.

The Kulturen museum should also be on your list. It has many different expositions showcasing the history of the city, as well as a great outdoor museum, where you can walk around a mock village and enter typical houses and buildings of olden times.

Lund also has some great parks. The botanical garden was really one of my favorite, with its many many different flowers, plants, vegetables and fruits. Stadsparken is also a great park to sit and have a picnic or observe the funny birds in the aviary.

Finally, the university is at the center of the city life, and even if I didn’t get a chance to visit it, some buildings are worth the stop as they were built in the 17th century.

The Lund University Library is quite a sight. PC:
