As we walked in, the organist was playing. Lovely acoustics! There are 3 organs there, There are three pipe organs!When you first enter, you are struck by how plain the white walls are. Once you focus in, you see that there are exquisite glass sculptures...More

The exterior is more impressive than the interior. There was no guidance on what was sidnificant inside. You can wander around inside and look.

We had a brief drop at Växjö cathedral while passing nearby. The cathedral was under renovation, so not much chance to see the outside. However, the inside is splendid with a fantastic altar and other artifacts made of glass. Recommended.

We have attended a couple services at this church and it is a beautiful church with a well organized service. Below is a view of the church a block away with glasswork that resembles work at the alter of the church.

Lovely to see a Lutheran cathedral after seeing so many Catholic ones in southern Europe. This one had great contemporary arts projects throughout it, with secular themes about the earth, environment, and peace. Very nice place.

Off course you would expect fine glass things in Southern Smaaland´s, and that´s you get. Definitely worthwhile if in the neighborhood.
