Once upon a time Lund was one of the most important towns in Denmark. These days, it’s one of the most charming towns in Sweden with its cobbled streets, flower-filled parks and medieval buildings. Towering over everything is the Romanesque cathedral which was consecrated in 1145 and includes a huge astronomical clock created around 1380. It wasn’t until 1658 that the region, Skåne, became part of Sweden. Visitors can descend into the crypt where the most popular attraction is a column bearing a sculpture of Finn, a giant who reportedly helped build the cathedral.
