Helsingborg is beautifully situated at the strait of Oresund between Sweden and Denmark. Its history dates back to the Viking Age, when and up to 1658 the southernmost part of Sweden belonged to Denmark. During that time the castle of Helsingborg (Karnan) was a stronghold for the Danish King. Since then the town has developed into one of the most important ports of Scandinavia and into an industrial, commercial and cultural center as well.
