Region Scania

This is the most southern region of Sweden. With an ancient history it presents ruins from the iron-age like the mystical Ale’s stones, 59 stones placed in the formation of a ship, maybe a burial monument or an astronomical clock. Originally part of Denmark, the region is scattered by pre-17th century Danish influences throughout the villages, towns and cities. Symbol of this relation is the Öresund Bridge, an impressive 16 km-long bridge connecting Copenhagen and Malmö. Ancient monuments from the Viking era are also present in the region like the remnants of the old Trelleborg castle.
