The Fish Church in Gothenburg

Feskekôrka (Swedish: Fiskkyrkan (normalized[disambiguation needed]), English: Fish church) is an indoor fish market in Gothenburg, Sweden, which got its name from the building's resemblance to a Gothic church.[1] It opened on 1 November 1874, and was drawn by the city architect Victor von Gegerfelt.[1] Feskekôrka is an institution in Gothenburg as well as a tourist magnet, housing one of the city's oldest trades, fishing.

Apart from a fish market, there is also a fish- and seafood restaurant in the building.
