I thought I should show you some snapshots from my first day at work, from Lund and from Kulturen.
Lund is belived to have been founded around 990, when this region of Sweden, called Scania, belonged to Denmark. Along with Sigtuna, Lund is the oldest city in Sweden, and the center of Lund is full of old buildings. Quite picturesque. Already in 1666 Lund University was founded, and is now the largest university in Sweden.
|LUND The Cathedral of Lund, Kungshuset (university building where I|
studied Philosophy), the street outside Kulturen and the oldest university building.

Kulturen is a big museum where you can walk around outdoors and indoors and see buildings, environments and exhibitions that show how people have lived and worked in Sweden through different ages and in different social classes. The museum was founded in 1882 and has grown more and more, when old buildings have been moved here. Kulturen has a great collection of artefacts from Sweden but also from cultures around the world, and they have both permanent and temporary exhibitions.
