Exhibitions, shops and cafés that gives you an idea about Sweden in the old days. Often different markets and an outdoor theater. Located in Stadsparken and close to the river Svartån.

Very nice place to visit with a lot of things to see in small old houses. It’s also next to a gorgeous park. Perfect for visiting during summer - autumn.
