I can’t say enough about how beautiful this church is! You can spend hours roaming through and learning the history. There are amazing details in the architecture; some of the structure dates back to the 1400-1600s. Everywhere you look you find a feast for the eyes. There are rich woods, stained glass, ships(!), chandeliers and so much more! They provide info about every little detail. I was fortunate enough to not just tour the church but also returned for a service on Sunday. Even though the service was mostly in Swedish, I understood what was happening and was made to feel very welcome to be there. The organ music was more like Phantom of the Opera, but was still worship, and the organist received a standing ovation after the service. Amazing! You CAN bring children to experience touring this church. They even have a game for children called Hitta Kyrkamossen that means hidden church mice. Little toy stuffed mice are hidden throughout, and the trail to find them leads little ones through the most important areas. (Learn & play!) Although I had no children with me, I went on the hunt, and I found it to be great fun. I was amazed at some of the places these mice were hidden. (They provide a map to help.) Also, there are many little cafes and restaurants in the square around the church, which is nice! I can’t wait to return!!!
