The South and the Kingdom of Glass Travel Guide
Southern Sweden is considered, even by many Swedes, to be a world of its own, clearly distinguished from the rest of the country by its geography, culture, and history. Skåne (pronounced skoh-neh), is one of Sweden's smallest provinces; here you'll find beautifully fertile plains, sand beaches, thriving farms, bustling historic towns and villages, medieval churches, and summer resorts. These gently rolling hills, extensive forests, and fields are broken every few miles by lovely castles, chronologically and architecturally diverse, that have given this part of Sweden the name Château Country.
