Malmö, Sweden's third largest city, is a multicultural portal to Europe. Indeed, a short drive from the city will take you to the iconic Oresund Bridge that links Sweden to Denmark. The city's proximity to the continent is reflected in its highly diverse population, and the many ethnic restaurants scattered around town bear testament to that fact. A settlement has existed here since the 13th century, and Malmö, despite offering a modern exterior to the world, is a city filled with history. It originated in its current form as a Danish settlement and passed to Sweden under the treaty of Roskilde in 1658.
