An impressive massive outline with tower, the church, in the National Romantic style, is one of the city's landmarks. By contrast, the inside is a disappointment - an uninteresting space with nothing much of note to see. However, once inside, the visitor should turn round...More

Vasa Church is very well structured with very historic belonging and interior. We liked painting and color combinations.
