Cold November morning and we are stepping into warm and spacious church. Wonderful atmosphere, great works of art, stained glass windows. One feels very special in this place. Our visit was out of season and early in the morning, which left the church calm and not crowded.

The Vadstena Church is not to be missed as it is both beautiful and historic. The exterior and interior is certainly one for architecture lovers, but others with an eye for beauty will also be pleased.

This is an impressive place with a great history of St. Bridget (1303 - 1373). It is most helpful to have a guide to add to the significance of all of the artifacts and grave stones in the floor.

Tasteful and airy church - obviously used for many different services and uses as interior has multiple orientation and "clusters of activities"

This is a must see for those who are architectural students, church history buffs, and those who are just looking for millennial old building tourists. It has much to see and often has tours. Put on your list of to dos if in Sweden.

If you interested in travelling back in time to a place that is both beautiful and peaceful, look no further. I attended both St.Lucia and Christmas Eve festivities/mass here and was in awe of the serenity that could be felt. So lovely.

The church has a very special lay out for a church from that era. It's like a big square hall, very special and very beautiful.

History at it's best...the final resting place of Saint Birgitta. Be sure to attend one of the Daily Masses held nearby with the Birgittas Nuns
