First weekend in Lund

malmo som

The first days at the new school are always full of excitement. New home, new friends and also new challenges. But the great thing about it is that you get to explore and seek new things. In Sweden knowing how to blow off steam is as important as knowing how to learn.

So I combined a small list of local attractions for you to visit on the first weekend in Lund or Malmö.


  • The town and the great buildings – Lund is full of historic building and an old town. The city itself is easily walkable and it takes 1-2 hours to see the beautiful little town.
  • Lunds libraries  – Libraries are a great place to study and the great thing abut Lund is that there are so many of them. Also libraries do house exhibits from time to time. Almost every faculty has its own library building that you can access.
  • Excursions – you can enjoy walks in the beautiful Skåne county. Just don’t forget the equipment!
  • The SEA – The sea is right there. You can go to Lomma and enjoy the beach there. Or you may also go to Malmö and have a swim near the newly constructed pier.


  • Museums – There are plenty of them. Modern art museum in Mal is free and has some world renown artists in their collection. Malmö konsthall – is ever changing gallery displaying modern art and it is also free. Malmö city museum has historic art, dinosaur exhibition, aquariums and terrariums full of interesting creatures and some beautiful furniture as well. Technology and maritime museum in Malmö – a very interesting museum housing steam trains, submarines, planes and all kinds of other technological marvels. Oh yeah, it also has a freaking supersonic fighter jet. – will help you plan your journeys.

There are much more places to visit than those listed here. Explore Sweden and don’t forget there’s Denmark right across the sea.
