Worship in the Church Of Fish.


The Feskekorka, a fish market in Goteborg, is a building steeped in history. Since it resembles a Gothic church, the old fish market has garnered the name Feskekorka, which translates to “fish church” in English and worship these sea creatures they do. Since it was built in 1840, the building has gained popularity among tourists who visit West Sweden as it serves as a thriving seafood market and an accompanying restaurant inside as well- not only is the grub delicious but the building is absolutely picturesque. The bold design of the building is a reflection of the architect’s inspiration by the Norwegian wooden stave and Gothic stone churches. In addition to fish and seafood, a huge variety of local produce is sold daily at the Feskekorka, this is a must see destination for anyone in Gothenburg.
