On the sunny west coast of Sweden's southern Gotland province, with a sweeping panorama across the Sound waterway separating it from Denmark's Zealand, the attractive little city of Helsingborg offers a perfect snapshot of contemporary Sweden. From here you can travel along the coast to the stately manor house and parklands of Sofiero, summer residence of the late king. Or to the picturesque fishing village of Old Viken, Hoganas, the centre of Sweden's pottery industry, and the splendid coastal scenery ofthe Kullaberg nature reserve.
The city of Helsingborg was established in the early 15th century near the site of the old town, which was known as a trade centre as early as the 9th century. A ruined fortress is all that remains of the old town. The city belonged to Denmark until 1658, when it was ceded to Sweden. The Danes recaptured it several times however, and it did not come under permanent Swedish control until 1710.
