Churches



In Stockholm we don´t have tall skyscrapers dominating the city skyline. What we do have on the other hand is several churches. In this photoblog you will see some of the churches, not because I visit them that often, but because they are in many ways really beautiful.

The Hedvig Eleonora church is located at Östermalms torg (torg = square). The church, named after King Karl tenths wife, was started 1669 but it was´nt finished until 1737 due to financial problems caused by Swedens constant wars during these years. As you can see in the first picture it is being partially renovated today.

It´s tall and majestic structure is massive and dominates the surroundings when you stand at the square. As several officeworkers go for lunch around noon the sun usually gives the church an even more majestic appearence.
For more pictures from the church go here.

See you tomorrow! =)
