concept

 (EV9) - Kaliningrad - Klaipėda - Riga - Tallinn (EV11) - St Petersburg Russia, Finland, Sweden, Denmark, Germany, Poland, Lithuania, Latvia, Estonia Contrary to the concept of ''South-Western Scania'', there is no common understanding of what is to be included and excluded in ''Metropolitan Malmö.'' The cities of Ystad and Helsingborg would typically be understood to be parts of the same metropolitan area

as the cities of Malmö and Lund, and so understood the metropolitan area is of roughly the same size as Metropolitan Gothenburg, but clearly smaller than Metropolitan Copenhagen or Metropolitan Stockholm. On the other hand, ''South-Western Scania'' is a more limited concept with an identity of its own. Since the 1970s, improved highways and commuter train connections have led to the actual metropolitan area growing to include Ystad, Skurup, Sjöbo, Eslöv, Höör


important building

preserved buildings in Sweden, from the 11th century, are made of stone. The earliest brick buildings where erected in the late 13th century. The most important building material, from early prehistoric times and well in to the 20th century, where wood. The early Swedish stone buildings are Romanesque (Romanesque architecture) churches on the countryside. Many of them were built in Scania, and are thus stylistically like Danish churches. This includes the magnificent Lund Cathedral from

wide sense

, Landskrona and Helsingborg. "Metropolitan area" is used in a wide sense here: often there are wide expanses of farmland and forest between the urban village agglomerations, especially in the parts of the area located to the north or east of Lund. It's not uncommon to live near Malmö and work either in Ystad or Helsingborg, or vice versa. Mentally, however, these towns have kept their allegiance with older divisions of Scania.

Ystad

'''Ystad''' ( ) is a town (Urban areas in Sweden), and the seat of Ystad Municipality, Skåne County, Sweden, with 18,350 inhabitants in 2010. The settlement dates back to the 11th century and the town has become a busy ferryport, local administrative centre and tourist attraction. It is associated with the fictional detective Kurt Wallander whose stories, by Henning Mankell, are set primarily in Ystad and nearby communities.

In 1285, the town's name was written ''Ystath''. Its original meaning is not fully understood, but the "''y''" is probably related to an old word for the yew tree (taxus), Svenskt ortnamnslexikon, 2003 while ''-stad'' is ''town'', or ''place''. In Danish times before 1658 the spelling was ''Ysted''.
