This church is in the middle of the old town of Stockholm. It’s bright color and copper green tower can be seen from all over the old town. Inside is very beautiful and the ornate alter screen is magnificently trimmed out in gold.

This church is probably the most centrally located in Stockholm. It is next to the King's Garden (Kungsträdgården) and the Royal Opera. It is worth to visit. There are also many concerts.

Great to have a nose around. Beautiful inside and very close to the Opera House. Stockholm maybe quite atheist now but they still look after their history and their churches. This is a fine example.

Stockholm has lots of beautiful churches open to the public and this one didn't disappoint! Beautiful inside and out. I wouldn't make a special trip to see it but if you're walking by it's certainly worth taking a few minutes to peak inside!

When walking on the western edge of Kungstradgarden, we couldn't miss this church behind the opera house because of its bright red color, and we decided to visit for a closer look. The structure turned out to be beautifully maintained outside and inside, with a...More

Amazing construction and design. Just beautiful at every turn. A mixture of styles, built, destroyed and rebuilt. You must visit.

Norrmalm is Stockholm’s most central and busiest
neighborhood. It’s home to the main shopping street,
Drottninggatan, and to Stockholm icons like the
Sergels Torg glass obelisk, the famous Hay Market with
its Carl Milles sculptures, and the Hötorget
Skyscrapers, a sight on every other Stockholm
postcard. Norrmalm is also home to Sweden’s most
traditional department stores Nordiska Kompaniet and
