Majorna is a beautiful district in Western Göteborg with a great selection of culture, old streets and buildings, second hand stores and cosy cafés. If you want to visit this beautiful part of the city, take the chance to do it this weekend. This Saturday Majorna is turning into a huge flea market, when local associations, stores and neighbors move their business out on the streets. It is time for the annual Majornadagen, where you find alternative shopping as well as local bands and delicous food.

Gathenhielmska Kulturreservatet
The bohemian district Majorna is filled with second hand, organic and fair-trade stores. During Majornadagen local associations get the chance to display their activeness and neighbors from the district get an occation to sell home-made "fika" or old clothes and furnitures. If you want tobuy ecologic products or second-hand bargains, Majornadagen is probably the ultimate occation.

Majorna is a vivid district, not only regarding alternative shopping but also when it comes to art and music. Here you fint Bengans Skivaffär, probably the most famous record store in Göteborg and the biggest in Scandinavia! (Where?). In Musikens Hus, "The house of music", you find alternative culture events, like Salsa parties, Poetry slam and Blues concerts. They also offer a vegetarian lunch buffé in café Hängmattan, as well as different courses (Where?).

Gathenhielmska kulturreservatet is a beautiful and cosy culture  reservate which represent Majorna as it looked like hundred years ago, before more modern houses were contructed in the late 19th Century. (Where?). In the outer area of Majorna you find another culture reservate, Klippans Naturreservat, as well as Röda Sten, which is a cultural arena for contemporary art next to the harbour (Where?).

Reserve your Saturday to Majorna. If the weather is fine you will probably experience this part of the city from its best side.
