The ancient Masthugg Church built in 1914, was preserved in the city. The main distinguishing feature of this church is the 60-meter tower, which can be seen from different parts of the city. The church was built in the best traditions of the Romanesque style. The main building material for the erection of the church was a massive stone. Today it makes the church look like a medieval defensive structure.
One of the most symbolic historical monuments of the city is the Kronhuset building. This brick building in the Dutch style was built in 1643. For several hundred years it housed government offices. Now the building is used for celebrations and cultural events. Every year it opens the biggest and most interesting Christmas bazaar in the city. Near the historic building, there are several ancient annexes, in which today there are interesting souvenir shops and cafes.
An original symbol of Gothenburg is the historical seafood market of Feskekorka, the opening of which took place as far back as 1874. The market is located in a very unusual Gothic building, which with its features resembles an ancient church. A look at this historic market is worth it even for those who are not going to independently prepare seafood during the holiday. The market has two wonderful restaurants, where you can try masterfully prepared seafood.
