One of the oldest cities in Sweden (the first settlement can be traced back to 1085), Helsingborg is both charming and incredibly scenic. It’s the closest point in the country to Denmark. In fact, a quick ferry ride across the water lands passengers in Helsingor, Denmark and Hamlet’s castle. On a sunny day, you can even make out the castle on the banks of the water.

Like most European cities, Helsingborg, Sweden,  features many historic spots, including the medieval fortress, Kärnan, and Kullagatan, the first pedestrian shopping street in Sweden.

Even on a cloudy day, it is still easy to see the beauty of this coastal town.
