Helsingborg is positioned in the southernmost part of Sweden, called Skane, and has an estimated population of 110,000. Helsingborg is Sweden's closest point to Denmark, with the Danish city Elsinore plainly observable on the other side of the strait of Oresund. Historic Helsingborg, with its many old houses, is an attractive coastal city. The buildings are a blend of old-style stone-built churches and a fortress in the center, and more modern commercial buildings. The streets vary from spacious avenues to small alleys. Helsingborg is a chief regional center of trade, transport and business. It is said that a substantial number of Swedes still travel to Helsingr to take advantage of more beneficial alcohol taxes there, even if recent currency changes have reduced the benefit. Indeed, it could be said that the Danish city of Helsingr built a significant amount of its industry on Swedish alcohol-tourists. Today the route is popular with day-trippers going to Copenhagen or simply enjoying the views from the ferries.
