Skellefteå - City walk 30 minutes

Skellefteå

Do you have a moment over then get out on this city tour. 
Here you will see, among other things, the "outside room" beside the Skellefteå River. Once upon a time, you could find a steam brewery that was Skellefteå's oldest industry at that exact place.
You walk towards the quay and on to the "Rosa hus" where you will find a café that has existed since the 50s. Pass through the city church of Saint Olov, which was inaugurated in the 1920s, before passing the pedestrian street back towards the center. Last but not least, you walk past the statue Oden woman, who was called the "resting woman" and was built in 1956 by an Austrian artist who worked on designing gold products in our own Gold Town Skellefteå.
