Helsingborg is a town on the southwestern tip of Sweden, on the coastline. It is Sweden's closest point to Denmark, which is clearly visible across the strait.
One of the oldest towns in Sweden, Helsingborg was founded in 1085, and throughout history has held geographical significance due to its position on the strait.
Today, it is known for its historical scenery, architecture, medieval fortress Karnan, and its pedestrian shopping area, which was the first of its kind in the country.
