St. Petri (St. Peter's Church), Malmo

(4.3/5 based on 460+ reviews on the web)
Marvel at the simplicity of St. Petri (St. Peter's Church), a large house of worship built in the Gothic style in 1319. The grand brick exterior is complete with a 105 m (344 ft) tower and surrounded by stone carvings. In contrast, the interior features simple white walls that enhance the ornate fixtures and altar. One section of the ceiling has been restored to the original painted mural. As the oldest building in the city, the church provides a haven for quiet retreat. An informational pamphlet is available at an additional cost.
