Then and now
Skåne used to be the stronghold of the Vikings, and the nobility also liked the Danish province. The innumerable manor houses and castles with impressively well-kept gardens date back to this time. The dialect the locals still speak today can also be traced back to an earlier era. It has many similarities to the Danish language. History fans definitely won’t be disappointed. You have the opportunity to immerse yourself in the history of Southern Sweden in many museums and marvelling at Renaissance villages and medieval churches. While nature lovers will feel at home on the 400 kilometre long coast and many national parks.
Good to know: In English, Skåne is also known as Scania.
