Scania (Skåne in Swedish) is Sweden's "Castle Country," a supremely romantic destination, lavishly dotted with castles, manor houses and small churches. It is also Sweden's southernmost province, and the most densely populated, with 99 people per square kilometer (which contrasts with with one person per square kilometer in Sweden's most sparsely populated province, Lappland). Besides which, It boasts more golf courses per square kilometer than any region in all of Scandinavia.
Skåne is Sweden's southernmost province, largely flat, bicycle friendly, and with a remarkably pretty summer landscape characterized by green beech forests, long sandy beaches and vast fields in a full spectrum of yellow. Plus, its fertile plains and farmlands have given it the moniker, Sveriges Kornbod, or "granary of Sweden," which is well deserved.
Mostly importantly, however, since the year 2000, Skåne has linked Sweden to both Denmark and continental Europe via the Öresundsbron bridge at Malmö, Scania's largest city.
