The Culture Centre 105 is located on the main street of the city – Zwycięstwa Street, to the west of the city hall, on the left side of a street, past a bridge over the Dzierżęcinka River. It can be reached by car or using local public transportation.
The name of the Culture Centre 105 comes from the number of a building at Zwycięstwa Street, where the Centre is located. It consists of four tenement houses of different heights, built in 1871 and combined into one building. Before the end of the Second World War, there was a theatre, a concert hall, and a restaurant, eagerly visited by the inhabitants of Koszalin.
The Culture Centre 105 is a municipal entity, whose mission is the promotion and popularization of culture as well as education. The Centre started its activity in 1976, as the Municipal Culture Centre.
