Echoes of my Neighbourhood – #3

Here are the Echoes of My Neighbourhood, a fun challenge by JacquelineEvery Thursday she invites us to share photos of our neighbourhood and link them to her blog. I think it’s a lovely way of having a glimpse of the world we live in through pictures. 

I was away in Sweden last weekend to attend a birthday party as well as execute some personal projects. Here are sights of Malmo, Sweden.

My photography is nothing professional.  A work in progress though! 🙂

    1. It’s such a charming place. The interior is breathtaking! I read in one of your post that Sweden is on your list of travel destinations in Europe. You will sure enjoy the visit. It’s a beautiful country. 🙂

    1. Thanks for asking this question. Yeah, they are called – The Optimistic Orchestra or Optimistorkestern in Swedish. They are bronze statues created in 1985, by a local artist called Yngve Lundell. I’ve edited the post with these infos. I appreciate. 🙂

  1. I’d love to visit Malmo!! And Stockholm and Gothenburg.. Sweden is the only country in Scandinavia that I still haven’t visited. It should be in the Summer though because I dread the winter!!! Lovely photos!! :)))

  2. Some great photos, Stella. I love those bronze statues, and the Emporium building is such an amazing design – very eye-catching. I hope you had a wonderful time in Malmo and enjoyed the birthday party. Best wishes, Millie

    1. Well, now you know… Lol. Malmo is a popular city in Sweden and the third largest. It is 20 minutes away by train from the Copenhagen Airport. It will interest you to know that Malmo is home to the World Maritime University (WMU). An enchanting city, I’d say. 🙂

      1. Hi Simpledimple -My two children have Danish blood from their Dad, whose Grandparents were the first generation to come to the USA (stone masons), so most of the distant relatives still inhabit that region. Someone kept very good records of that family tree. We’ve connected long distance, but have never met. Lots of Kin in Denmark! 🙂 How long have you been there?
