    Favorite thing: Möllevången (Often called just "Möllan") is a southern city-area in Malmö known for its foreign influences. Many streets on Möllevången gives you a feeling of beeing abroad with all the shops having their signs written in arabian or turkish. Originally Möllevången was a rather poor workingclass neighbourhood. Today Möllevången is still not yet considered a flashy & rich neighbourhodd (thank god!), but it has achieved a certain kind of trendy/"picturesque" status - especially among the more alternative youths (for example leftwing political supporters, rastafarians).

    This is definetly an area well worth visiting, and also the area where you can find the cheapest items - especially when it comes to food. On saturdays they have a big marketplace with vegetables on the Möllevångensquare (the centre of Möllevången). Here you can get really low prices.
    On the Möllevångensquare there´s also alot of popular pubs with outdoorseats that is often overcrowded with thirsty youths.
    The main reason for all the youths to hang out at Möllevången on weekends is probably, except for the good atmosphere, the cheap beer. On many pubs a beer only costs 2-4 Euros (while downtown you have to pay 4-6 Euros).

    Some people might say that that Möllevången is an area you should avoid during nighttime - but I really think thats just rubbish.
    Möllevången do have a history of high crimerate, but lately this area has become so popular & busy that you´ll never get into any awkward situations or deserted crimespots.
