Ystad Guide

The town of Ystad is located in Skane County in the south west of Sweden. The town's origins date back to the 11th century when the mouth of the River Vassa was settled by families fishing for herring which was became the settlement's main source of income. It was another several centuries before the town was mentioned again when in 1244, a record was made of King Eric's visit to the town with his brother Abel. Shortly after the King's visit a Franciscan Monastery, Grabrodraklostret, was founded in 1267 and later Ystad joined the Hanseatic League in the 14th century. Of particular interest to visitors to the town is one of Sweden's best preserved medieval monasteries, the Greyfriars Abbey. There is also a medieval church in the town, the Church of the Virgin Mary (Mariakyrkan). Both buildings were influences by Gothic Hansa architecture and are excellent examples of Brick Gothic architecture in Sweden.

Ystad today is a busy ferry port, administrative centre and tourist attraction spurred on perhaps because of the town's association with the fictional police officer Kurt Wallender. The creation of Henning Mankell, Wallender is mainly set in Ystad and the surrounding area. The town's ferry port has services to the Danish island of Bornholm and to Swinoujscie (formerly Swinemünde), in Poland.

Ronne Guide

Located on the island of Bornholm, also known as the “Pearl of the Baltic”, Ronne is officially part of Denmark although it is in fact closer to Sweden, Poland and Germany and combines the cultures of the entire Baltic region. Ronne is a great place to escape to and relax whilst taking in its beautiful landscape and immersing yourself in its charming slower pace of life. The city's older districts have been popular with tourists for a number of years and of particular interest are the streets of Laksegade and Storegade which have a number of historic houses that were once home to the city's merchants and noblemen. Popular landmarks include the Bornholm Museum, the Defence Museum, St. Nicolas' Church, the Smedegards Riding School and the lighthouse which was built in 1880. The city is quite compact and can easily be explored on foot.

Ronne is connected to the rest of Denmark and to the outside world by ferry services to Koge, Ystad, Sassnitz and Swinoujscie. There is also a high speed catamaran link to Ystad which connects to a direct train link between Ystad and Copenhagen.
