This is a post about the last really long, and a random, walk around the streets of Gothenburg. This walk was around 17 kilometers long! I had a couple of locations I wanted to visit, so I’ll write a short info about those places.
Also, the post about the “lipstick” building will be published next week.
Images below show the Feskekorka – an indeor fish and shellfish market where you can buy all kinds of seafood delicacies caught on that day.
It was built in 1874 as an architectural experiment by Victor von Gegerfelt, who was inspired by the wooden Norwegian stave churches and stone Gothic churches, that’s the reason why this building reminds everyone on a church. The idea was to have a room without pillars.
During my walk, I had to check out the oldest building in Gothenburg – Kronhuset (images below). It was built in 1642-1654 in Dutch style. It was used as a shelter for guns, ammunition, uniforms and food. After it was restored, it became a museum, and today it’s also used as a concert hall.
During 1660, it was also used as a government hall.
Also, there are a couple of interesting places I plan to visit in the following days…. can’t wait!
