The place is quite strange, situated among old, nice, wooden townhouses, and partly built together with the old cinema. A strange hybrid that seemed to functioned on the inside, but looked strange from the outside. Several nice cafés and even something like a library.

Apart from frequent Out of Order signs on the free (that´s cool!) pcs, this is a lovely place to visit. The celebration of internationalism in what sometimes feels like a rather insular society is a breath of fresh air.

We visited this excellent multi-cultural complex in December and were very impressed indeed with the cinema and library. There was also a gingerbread house city on display that was absolutely charming.
