Helsingborg is a Town and the seat of Helsingborg Municipality, Scania, Sweden. The city is also Sweden’s closest point to Denmark, with the Danish city Helsingör clearly visible on the other side of the Øresund about 4 km to the west, closer than to the city’s own remoter areas.
Historic Helsingborg, with its many old buildings, is a scenic coastal city. The buildings are a blend of old-style stone-built churches and a 600-year-old medieval fortress in the city centre, and more modern commercial buildings. The streets vary from wide avenues to small alley-ways. Kullagatan, the main pedestrian shopping street in the city, was the first pedestrian shopping street in Sweden.
