In the old town we found this beautiful church. Very very nice glass windows. The sun was shining in through them, wow. Nice and quiet from the buzz in old Town.

This is a functioning Lutheran church which people have clearly forgotten, given the sign outside exhorting tourists to wait until services are finished. Inside, it's surprisingly brightly decorated, given its Lutheran origins.

The church has a nice interior with a lot of paintings. On the outside there's a small park/garden. There is no entrance fee.

A small church with stained glass windows and biblical frescoes and paintings. Nice place to sit and think and rest up for a bit.

This church is a sight to behold. Love seeing the different type of architect throughout Scandinavia. So much carved and painted wood.

Visiting the Old German Church gives an interesting historical aspect on how a group of merchants made a distinct contribution to Stockholm a few hundred years ago.

This is the 2nd time I've been here. I was disappointed that they had no brochures left printed in English!

This is a lovely beautiful church in the old town that is worth a quick visit if you are walking past. The building looks lovely and the inside is wonderful.

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)
