Helsingborg is a port city which is located on the Southwestern part of Sweden. It is a major regional centre of trade, transport and business as well as a place to see some beautiful hystorical and modern architecture. The city is located at the closest point between Sweden and Denmark, with the Danish city Helsingør clearly visible on the other side of the Öresund about 4 km to the west.
The population in the urban area is 130.626 (2012, SCB).

Kärnan

Kärnan is a medieval tower in Helsingborg, Scania, in southern Sweden. It is the only part remaining of a larger Danish fortress which, along with the fortress Kronborg on the opposite of Oresund, controlled the entranceway to the Baltic Sea.

Thank you, Italiano! By the way, do you live near Helsingborg or is Halmstad quite far from it? :)

^^I think it can be considered as quite near, it takes about 40 minutes to travel there by car and with train only like 20-30 min or so! :)

^^All of Swedish West coast is pretty well connected actually From the Oslo region in Norway down to the Oresund region with Copenhagen in Denmark and Malmö/Lund/Helsingborg in Sweden! And then we have cities like Gothenburg, Borås and Halmstad in between that too! :)
And all the the cities are both well connected by motorways and railways! :cheers:
