The area
Neighborhood: Djurgården & Djurgårdsbrunn
The island of Djurgården and its northern mainland extension, Djurgårdsbrunn, impress with a mix of nature and an abundance of museums, while being located in walking distance to Stockholm’s city center. Djurgården not only invites visitors to take endless walks through a beautiful park landscape without having to leave the city, but also offers an incredible range of entertainment facilities, such as an open air museum which specializes in the Swedish way of life pre-industrialization, the renowned Vasa Museum with its legendary sailing ship, and Sweden’s most famous amusement park Gröna Lund, which is more than a 100 years old.

Funny, it appears that our people are the greatest fans of this attraction – twice as many reviews :))
We were there at Epiphany, that’s January 6th (at home January 19th); there were many people (can’t say if the church has its own community; my guess is those were tourists – it was about -10 C , good to bee indoors for a while :). They had a chorus and a pipe organ, too, put up quite a feast.
They keep the original candle-lights, manually lit, as you will see from the photos - quite remarkable, considering it’s a wooden structure.
Note:
Tripadvisor for some reason lists two photos of the Seglora church (the one in stone) in Seglora as Seglora church in Skansen. The latter one is wooden, built in 1729; it was bought by Skansen’s founder Arthur Hazelius and, to save it from being torn down, transported from Borås region in central Sweden in early 20th century (look up its site to see more history).
The organ, by the way, comes from another village church some place north of Stockholm, 18th century, too.

Seglora kyrka (Seglora Church) is an 18th Century church that was moved to the Skansen open air museum. The church as a very popular wedding venue which can be nice to experience. It's also a interesting church from an architectural point of view and respresents a typical type of church from Västergötland.
Howeverour visit to Seglora was for one of their music activities during Easter. It's a nice church, with old fashioned accoustics but it's more enjoyable when the weather is warmer...
