Historic sites including Malmöhus Slott Castle and the gothic Sankt Petri Church vie for your attention here alongside mighty modern structures, such as the Turning Torso – Scandinavia’s tallest building. Finally, before returning home, Boudicca takes you to Lysekil, where you could explore the colourful harbour and see the enchanting Lysekil Church, or even opt for a tour to the picture-perfect fishing village of Fiskebäckskil.
