Öresund – the strait that separates Denmark from Sweden. In its narrowest sections, it seems that literally a stone’s throw to a neighboring country on the opposite bank. You are in Denmark, and you see Sweden. Although for the most part on the shores of the strait beyond its horizon it is not possible to reach with a look. Another thing is by train or car. The Öresund bridge, which connects Danish Copenhagen and Swedish Malmo, is the longest road-rail bridge in Europe. When you were traveling along it, I was already in anticipation of an interesting trip, the route of which ran precisely around the Öresund Strait. Then there were four new Scandinavian cities ahead.
“AROUND THE SOUND”
Copenhagen – Malmo – Lund – Helsingborg – Elsinore – and return to Copenhagen. Why was the route chosen such? It should be explained, because for someone it can be a useful life hack. The fact is that in Copenhagen you have a great opportunity to buy an Around the Sound ticket, thanks to which you can circle around the Öresund Strait. Within 48 hours, you can ride all the trains and buses in this direction (travel by public transport in the cities that are on the road is also included in the price). Thus, you can visit several interesting cities in southern Sweden and Danish Helsingor), where the legendary Hamlet of Shakespeare is located. A prerequisite is to make a full circle. It is allowed to cross the strait only two times: one by train across the Öresund bridge, and the second by ferry between Helsingborg and Helsinger. Ticket price – 299 Danish kroner (approximately 1200 hryvnias). For your understanding, a single ticket from Copenhagen to Malmo across the strait costs 130 kroons. Therefore, this is indeed a very profitable investment for travel. Continue reading

At the same time, not all travel agencies agree that vouchers “have fallen in price.” Simply, most of their customers are not ready to significantly spend money on vacation.
To the south
This year, Ukrainian tourists are changing their travel preferences. If previously Turkey was a popular country for holidays in the summer, and Egypt in the winter, now a new trend has emerged in the tourism market – Ukrainians increasingly prefer Egyptian resorts in the summer. This was partly because back in 2017, Russian tourists began to come to rest in large numbers on holiday in Turkey. Therefore, hotels in this country are less interested in accepting Ukrainians, explained RBC-Ukraine development director of the tourism company “Clean Tourism” Ivanna Chuchman. Continue reading
