The engelbrekt church

Once again, another one of Stockholms churches. This one lays on Birger Jarls gatan on my way home from work. One thing that strikes me with Stockholms nearly one hundred churches is the architectual differences that exist.
The Engelbrektchurch that you see in the picture was finished in 1914, and even though it´s not as decorative as some other churches that you´ve seen, it certainly is quite striking. Having Scandinavias highest vaults and being built on quite a high hill centrally makes it a pretty impressive sight.
Stockholms churches dominate the landscape in a skyscraperfree city. And at the same time they´re mostly empty, a strange feeling considering that this church was probably filled to the last seat when it was built (and it has 1400 seats). With modern society it has lost it´s place, atleast in Sweden, but atleast they´re nice to look at = )
