3. Famous as a Christian town at that time, Lund used to have tens of churches scattered around the city, including the most prominent one: Lunds Domkyrka.

4. Lund was suffered from fires and on-and-off battles between Denmark and Sweden in the past. Luckily, the streets in Lund are still following the medieval layout until now.

      Halo salam kenal, terima kasih sudah mampir. Nice to meet you (virtually) too 😄. Sudah ada beberapa tulisan tentang what I feel and what I think about Lund sebenarnya. Bisa dibrowse di kategori Our Sweden Diary yang awal-awal. Bakal ada yang lain juga soon, yang soal how to survive itu insyaAllah nanti saya bikin tulisan sendiri (thanks for the idea anyway 😊 ).

      Yes you should come and visit Lund. This city isn’t famous for tourism compare to other cities in Europe but it actualy has a great history and lots of gems.

      It’s a pleasure to share my stories and to receive comments from the readers, so thanks to you too 🙏🏼😊
