Haga

Haga is one of the oldest neighborhoods in Gothenburg. During the early 1900s Haga was a working-class district with small apartments and low living standards. During the 197os-198os, the district underwent extensive demolitions and renovations, met with strong protests and occupations. Haga was characterized by a rich cultural life, political movements and lively night life. Today, the district is a popular residen­tial a rea and tourist a rea, full of small cafés and shops.
