Back to Europe we go! Today we're welcoming Sweden to Literary City Guides, and taking a tour of Helsingborg on Sweden's southern tip, not far from Copenhagen. When Iris emailed me to offer a guide, I was excited for a few reasons. One, it's always nice to expand the international offerings, and second, since my husband's company is headquartered in Stockholm, I've become more interested in the culture since he works with so many Swedes.
Although not known for its bookstores, being a university town does have its advantages, like numerous campus libraries (complete with outdoor hammocks), as well as HC Anderson's childhood home, and Kronborg Castle, better known as Elsinore from Hamlet. Don't leave without trying Swedish waffles with homemade jam!
