Dalby is a locality situated in Lund Municipality, Skåne County, Sweden with 5,708 inhabitants in 2010. It is located about 10 km east-south-east of Lund, and about 20 km east-north-east of Malmö.Dalby has the oldest stone church in Scandinavia, to which the cathedral in Hildesheim served as a model. In 1060 the Danish King Svend Estridsen initiated the creation of a religious centre in Dalby, and also constructed his King's Residence here. From 1060 Dalby was a bishopric under the bishop Egino, appointed by Adalbert of Bremen. But as early as 1066 the English antibishop Henrik was enthroned in Lund, probably elected by the people and the clergy. In 1085 Canute the Saint decided to build a new cathedral in Lund and in 1104 Lund became the archbishopric over Scandinavia.Until the Protestant Reformation in Denmark in 1536, Dalby retained some importance as the site of an Augustinian monastery and a demesne of the Crown.Dalby was a municipality up until 1974, when it became part of Lund municipality. Between 1941 and 1954, Dalby was also a municipal urban area ("municipalsamhälle").
