Things to do: nature, historic sites, museums
Landskrona is a late medieval town located at the shores of Øresund, founded at the location of the former Danish fishing village Sønder Sæby in the province of Scania by king Erik VII of Pomerania early in the 15th century. In 1720 the town, like its province, became a formal part of Sweden. Around the Castle build by Danish king Christian III in 1549, Landskrona Citadel, a huge system of moats emerged over the centuries, also in the town's Swedish history. Today the Citadel is famous for its well preserved moat system, which includes parts of four moats. At the northern part of the Citadel, Sweden's second, and today oldest allotment area is located. Its port is based on a natural chute in the sandy sea floor, despite the lack of any nearby debouching river. The town is the seat of Landskrona Municipality. The town which in March 2013 celebrated its 600th birthday had close to 33,000 inhabitants at that time.The town had for many years a car ferry line to Copenhagen Landskrona is located close to the Danish Capital. From Rådhustorget in Landskrona to Amalienborg Royal Palace in central Copenhagen, the crow flight distance is around 22-23 km. In the later parts of the 19th century the town was transformed from a military settlement to a heavy industrial town. Between 1917 and 1983 Öresundsvarvet shipyard had up to 3,500 employees, but the town also had large manufacturers in the chemical and textile industry sectors. The football club Landskrona BoIS, which has participated in either of the top two Swedish league divisions during all but four seasons, ever since the Swedish football league system began in 1924-25, has always been important for the town and its inhabitants.
