Landskrona Citadellet

If you have seen my panorama of Helsingør, you know that we also went to Sweden, when we visited Denmark earlier this month.
First we took the ferry between Helsingør and Helsingborg and then we drove along the coast to Malmö and took Øresundsbron (Oresund Bridge) back to DK.
In between Helsingborg and Malmö, the city of Landskrona is located, where we never had been before. This photo shows you Landskrona Slott, Citadellet (Landskrona Castle, The Citadel).

Landskrona Slott, Citadellet is a former Danish castle, built by the Danish King Christian III between 1549 and 1559, when the Southern part of the present Sweden (Skåne, Halland and Blekinge) was still Danish. It became Swedish in 1658 after the Treaty of Roskilde.
The name Landskrona means "The Country's Crown".

The city of Landskrona has about 28,000 inhabitants, the municipality about 40,000, making it the fifth biggest city in Skåne. Also the island of Ven in the Öresund is part of the municipality. Landskrona is also the harbour for the ferries to Ven.
The city was founded in 1413 by King Erik VII of Pomerania.

This view is a stitch of two pictures, made with Autostitch. I couldn't get the castle in only one. :-)
Hope you like it!
