Metropolitan Gothenburg


Metropolitan Gothenburg (Stor-Göteborg or literally Greater Gothenburg), is a metropolitan area surrounding the city of Gothenburg in Sweden. The metropolitan region is located in Västra Götaland County, except for the municipality of Kungsbacka, which is located to the south in Halland County. As of 2005, the municipalities of Alingsås and Lilla Edet were added to the region. The region is often used for statistical measures, and estimates in the 1960s predicted that the region would have about one million inhabitants in the year 2000. The region is the second largest metropolitan area in Sweden after Metropolitan Stockholm.

Metropolitan Malmö


Greater Malmö (Swedish: Stor-Malmö) is the metropolitan area that includes Malmö, Sweden, and much of its surroundings. The area encompasses the south-eastern part of the Scandinavian Öresund Region. The metropolitan area surrounding the cities of Malmö and Lund in the southernmost part of Sweden are usually denoted as South-Western Scania (Sydvästra Skåne), or more seldom Metropolitan Malmö.

Since the 1970s, improved highways and commuter train connections have meant that commuting area has grown to include Ystad, Skurup, Sjöbo, Eslöv, Höör, Landskrona and Helsingborg. It's not uncommon to live in Malmö and work either in Ystad or Helsingborg, or vice versa. Mentally, however, these towns have kept their allegiance with older divisions of Scania. Inhabitants of Eslöv and Höör consider themselves to live in Central Scania, like Landskrona still is grouped together with Helsingborg rather than Malmö–Lund.
