Home to the burial ground of the Swedish monarchs, Riddarholm Church (Riddarholmskyrkan) represents one of the oldest buildings in the capital city and is used to this day for commemorative burials (although the congregation dissolved in 1807). The church was originally built in the 13th century as a monastery, but was closed and transformed into a Protestant church following the Protestant Reformation. Of particular interest are the coats of arms of passed knights of The Order of Seraphim that hang from the church walls.

  • As a native of Lützen a "have to do" for Stockholm visiting. Ther is the sarcophagus of Gustavus II Adophus. The King who was killed in the battle of Lützen on 6th November 1632.

  • Walk to this beautiful church if only to take a couple of photos. Amazing building.

  • Was closed when I visited, but what a beautiful exterior!
