  • Lilla Bommen building, insert the name of the people was one of the city's iconic red lipstick. The weather was very cold and windy. Walk around in the summer may be more enjoyable. We went inside to get to the top of the tower. The staff at the reception is closed on Fridays, he said, this is ridiculous.

  • It's all about a very nice boat berthed at dockside and a cool building looking like 2 stand lipsticks. Everything is beautiful.. but after 5 minutes you will be like: "Let's go!" 
  • Visible in the picture sailing ship is a twin brother of our gift of Pomerania. In the background a distinctive skyscraper popularly called lipstick

  • Perfect view on Gethenborg!
