During my staying in Copenhagen, my friend and I took a day trip to Malmö, Sweden. If you want to read about what we got up to in Copenhagen, learn how to travel to Malmö from Copenhagen, or watch the trip video then read my previous post.
Once we hopped on the train in Copenhagen, my first thought was how nice and spacious it was. We accidentally slid into the silent section of the train, but still enjoyed the 40 minutes ride with a gorgeous seascape scenery in silence.
Once we reached Malmö and left the central station it was around 3 P.M., and although it was a Sunday, we first noticed how desolate the town was. As we were walking it barely seemed like there was anyone in sight until we finally reached a square that had lively Italian music playing.
The architecture of Sweden reminded me of Italy with the small walkways and piazzas. There were a bunch of different restaurants and bars around the perimeter of the square, most of them were closed, but the ones that were open were popping.
Due to the lack of local options we chose to eat at T.G.I. Friday’s which is a classic American bistro. Whenever I travel, I make an effort not to eat at restaurants we have back in the United States, but we had no choice here.
When our waitress first approached our table she greeted us in Swedish, but quickly switched to perfect English when she realized we didn’t speak the language. I’m seriously always so amazed to see how well the European youth speak multiple languages.
I ordered a Caesar salad, which I didn’t photograph because salads aren’t that exciting. Once we were done, we started the walk to see the Malmöhus Castle and Turning Torso which are recommended as sights to see when visiting Malmö.
Again, the walk through the town was pretty empty except for a few cars, but also, really pretty because we strolled through the park as the sun was setting.
The Malmous Castle didn’t look like a typical castle that you would imagine from story books, but it was cool to see none the less since it has a moat. The Turning Torso truly is a sight, because of the amazing design that has the sky all to itself and getting to experience it during a purple sunset was awesome.
Since the sun was going down fast, we couldn’t explore all the light houses in Malmö and made it back to the train just as the sky turned black.
Although our stay in Malmö was brief, it was nice and chill. I definitely hope to visit more of Sweden one day and see all that the country has to offer.
