    Favorite thing: Bo-01 is located in the harbour of Malmö, about 15 minutes walk from the Malmö centralstation (or take bus number 3 towards "Västra Hamnen").

    Bo-01 is an exhibition AND a neighbourhood/cityarea of different architecturetypes in Malmö. Several architects & designers got to design houses and its surroundings which went by the name of Bo-01 (Translated "Live-01"). This has resulted in alot of houses & appartments with totally different looks & designs. Most of it was built in 2001, but yet today they are building new houses all the time (with the famous high Turning Torso-tower beeing the latest one).
    Today it´s a very popular area of the town which many people enjoy strawling through and especially swim & sunbath in.

    If you become such a big fan of the Bo-01 area that you decide to live there; be prepared to pay rents somewhere around 800-2000 Euros depending on the appartment-size.

    Fondest memory: Although Bo-01 IS a very expensive & rather luxurios area - it really really is a very relaxed, calm & nice area to just hang out at. Plus you can see Copenhagen & the bridge to Copenhagen from this area!
