Musicnotes on money in Sweden

November 16, 2007 at 11:52 AM

During my holiday in Denmark I visit a museum in Odense of the most well known (ever heard of?) Carl Nielsen:

With the boat we made a trip to Sweden in the dark and that same evening we drove back to Denmark over a big bridge from Malmo (in Sweden)to our hotel in Kopenhagen Denmark.
Later on a tower I made a photo of that huge bridge of 20 km!! connecting 2 countries:

The next day I made another huge bridge over a sea between 2 big islands of Denmark:

In Sweden we drunk some coffee. Both in Denmark and Sweden you don't have euro's (not yet?) so I paid with Danish money and got Swedish money back. Here it is 50 Swedish Krones.

There are musicnotes on the front. And also on the back with a guitarlike instrument, where they show where you can play all the notes.
OK now I can say I have been in Sweden and I have some Swedish money, but I only have seen it in the dark, so I don't know how the countryside is looking. A good reason to visit that country again in the future.

The back of that 50 crown note has what we call a "Swedish Key Fiddle".

Hi Bram,

I've been to Malmo. I took the ferry (MV Mecklenburg) from Warnemuende to Trelleborg and then drove to Malmo. At the time, you still needed another ferry to get to Denmark but now there is the giant bridge.
