Amidst all the old wooden houses in the city, this concrete modern architecture stands right out in the middle of town. It's out to get your attention. It looked like that it's a local favorite in this building that houses the library, the cinema and...More

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.

Its a great place to peruse all the different books. The library section covers 3 floors. There is a cinema-complex on the ground floor (bit out of date). Excellent with the opening hours being quite late, even the library stays open until 21.

A library with loads of seating options, a cinema, reliable free wifi, decent cafe - what's not to like? Other than the restroom, which seemed a complicated affair - but this seemed to be a feature of many places I went to - you either...More
