Unexpected delight

Found the church by chance. Particularly enjoyed the paintings around the walls. The church can easily be included in your walking tour of Gamla Stan

From outside, you notice the belfry that surprises you while walking in the alleys of Gamla Stan. Inside, as a lot of nordic churches, a lot of gold, paintings and sculptures. A kind and willing guide tell us about the story of the church, the particulars and the valuable artefacts, as the wooden baptistery.

Someone was practising the the amazing organ which gave our visit an extra special fizz. An unusual Church with no apparent altar, a very relaxing atmosphere.

Sadly we were unable to gain access to the church interior so contented ourselves with wandering around the graveyard. Most of the graves appear to be family graves and are very well looked after.

We stopped here for a quick visit while walking through the alleys of Gamla Stan. The church is not big and has a calm and dark ambiance, even on a sunny day.

Even though I was churched out at this point, this church was a nice change and interesting to see. The giant pillars in the middle of the church certainly made it feel even smaller than it was, and the organ, altar and walls were impressive. It's worth a visit.

This church was very beautiful inside! It was a bit different then most with its dark wood and almost photographic-like pictures on the ceilings of the seating areas. Worth checking out. The pipe organ is beautiful

You will find it in the narrow streets of Gamla Stan and it is very nice and beautiful.Not much place to take a good pic but not a problem.

Staying in Gamla Stan & Riddarholmen

Neighborhood Profile
Gamla Stan & Riddarholmen
Gamla Stan is Stockholm’s historic old town and home to the Swedish Royal Palace. It’s the most central island of Stockholm and accompanied by the small island of Riddarholmen, mainly known for its famous Riddarholm Church. Gamla Stan tends to be a bit touristy at times but is definitely worth visiting: take a stroll past the well-preserved buildings and through the small (and also Sweden’s narrowest) alleys, which will make you feel like you’ve travelled back in time. This neighborhood offers a great combination of historical buildings and traditional Swedish restaurants.
