People in Malmo actually use this space as a park to stroll, run and relax. I visited it as part of the walking tour and learnt it's divided into different areas (you'll notice some gravestones are more expensive than others!!). It's an interesting experience to...More

On a walk back from the museum, via the park, you can end up entering this garden. It's lined with old burial plots. Its a nice alternative to walk through to get to and from the old town to the castle and transport museum.

Thia "cemetery" is a nice park. It is a great place for a walk or to sit and relax for a while. The cemetery plots are really interesting. Some have beautiful ferns. This is a quiet, peaceful place to enjoy nature.
