A must to visit in Malmö is Möllevångstorget where all different nationalities come together. Here, for example, you can buy spices from Iraq at bargain prices, get delicious stuffed peppers from corner shops and eat Chinese dumplings. Möllevångstorget is the place where you can find everything; outdoor market, bars and surrounding restaurants.
If you want to visit a museum to remember, ”Moderna Museet” is the right place to head to. Here you can admire modern and contemporary art exhibited in Malmö’s old electricity plant. The excellent museum restaurant is well worth a visit as well, serving fresh sallads and sandwiches.
