Ystad - cozy city in southernmost Sweden

Some week ago I visited Ystad in southern Skåne.

Since it takes too much time to do the same job twice, I post a link instead, hope you understand: In Malmö, one hour by train from Ystad and most of Skåne it was thunders, rain and lightning the whole day, so the weather was very good in Ystad considering that.

Sample of pictures:







The rest is here:

So click on the link above and enjoy!

A nice looking town. Thanks for sharing the pictures! Does it have a large "old town" area?

Yes, it's Wallander town, didn't know it was that famous outside Sweden. Also featured in the popular swedish movie Svinalängorna.
The whole city center is the old town, so most old buildings are preserved, something unusual in Sweden.

Wallander is very popular in Poland as well as Winter.

Its not that unusual, but most swedish cities where originally mostly wooden structures and many burned down for different reasons (war, accidents, etc.).
