Early 19th century warehouse, Smygehuk

Smygehuk is a harbour and fishing village near Trelleborg in Skåne, Sweden. It’s most known for being the southernmost point of Sweden and the Scandinavian Peninsula (55° 20′ N).

Köpmansmagasinet (the 19th century warehouse)
During the Napoleonic wars, Köpmansmagasinet is said to have acted as a reloading site for smuggled goods. Today, the building houses a tourist office and art and handicraft exhibitions. Art installations are displayed outside the warehouse, which also hosts music and theatre performances. The most southerly traditional music festival in Sweden is held here each summer.
