Malm (Swedish pronunciation: in the southernmost province of Scania, is the third most populous city in Sweden, after Stockholm and Gothenburg.
Malm is the seat of Malm Municipality and the capital of Skåne County. The administrative entity for most of the city is Malm Municipality which has 293,909 inhabitants in eight different localities, with 30% being of foreign backgrounds (born outside of Sweden). Malm is also a bimunicipal locality, as part of it is Burlv Municipality. The total population of the urban area was 309,516 by the start of 2010, of which 16,607 were in Burlv.
Greater Malm is one of Sweden's three officially recognized Metropolitan areas and since 2005 is defined by the municipality of Malm and 11 other municipalities in the southwestern corner of Scania. On 30 June 2008, its population was recorded to be 628,388. The region covers an area of 2,535.76 square kilometres (979.06 sq mi). The municipalities included, apart from Malm, are Burlv, Eslv, Hr, Kvlinge, Lomma, Lund, Skurup, Staffanstorp, Svedala, Trelleborg and Vellinge. Lund, with a municipal population of over 100,000 and home to one of Scandinavia's major universities, is together with Malm the region's economic and education hub.
Malm was one of the earliest and most industrialized towns of Scandinavia, but it struggled with the adaptation to post-industrialism. Since the construction of the resund bridge, Malm has begun a slow revival with impressive architectural developments, attracting new biotech and IT companies, and particularly students through Malm University College. The city contains many historic buildings and parks, and is also a commercial centre for the western part of Scania. During the last few years a university college (Malm University) has been established and the city is now trying to focus on education, arts and culture. Malm was ranked #4 in Grist Magazine's "15 Green Cities" list in 2007.
