Since Sweden is one of the closest countries to Denmark, it was mandatory to include it on my itinerary. But due to a very tight schedule, I and Kat decided only to walk around the city of Malmö. Half-day was enough to recognize the appeal of this city --- its minimalism.
I am a fan of anything minimalist. As many always say, less is more. I didn't expect Malmö to be this poetically simple but I must say, this place is a photographer's haven. You need not know the tourist spots here since everywhere is an attraction itself. Don't limit your eyes to what is published, instead explore more as real-life slides appear before you.
But to be honest, our main intention was to visit the spectacular apartment building, Turning Torso. It is a popular attraction due to its unique design and the fact that it is the tallest building in Sweden.
And since there's nothing to do after seeing it and still had lots of time left, we decided to walk around Western Harbour. Along the way, architectures are showcased to impress. Again, minimalism as its finest. And that harbor is a perfect location to cap the stroll.
A view of Öresund Bridge can be seen from a distance. It is the link between Sweden and Denmark and was built just ten years ago.

Malmö may be a small part of Sweden but it has huge offerings to visitors and locals alike. As the sign below stresses, Diamonds are everywhere and they can be found in various forms.
I got one little jewel and serves as an inspiration in celebrating Distilling Thoughts' 5th birthday next year.
Malmö is a little light in Sweden shining very brightly and will continue to shine as long as visitors keep coming. If you want to have a relaxing trip, away from city's chaos, I highly recommend stopping at Malmö. Breathe in. Breathe out.

Tack, Sweden! Until we meet again and hopefully, I can have a look at your other parts.
