  • unusually beautiful church, it is a pity that you cannot listen to music-as in many other churches in Stockholm. But nice patio, well maintained, with flowers-perfect to sit in good weather.

  • Demand to pay to enter a cathedral I find it abnormal. Especially when money is not used to the restoration of the place. Short turn around after throwing a glance inside.

  • Church of St. Nicholas is situated next to the Royal Palace, and its high Bell Tower is clearly visible among the urban districts. It is believed that the first Church appeared at this place in the 13th century. The current brick building was erected much later. First church was Catholic, then became Lutheran. When the coronation took place here.
