  • Beautyfull Church in the middle of Stockholm old town If you visit during Christmas time its near Christmas marked Lots of details to look  more »
  • The building is not super impressive. But the small streets of the old town are nice. The dragon statue nearby is more interesting. This area was full of tourists from a cruise ship in the summer , nice to see some happy people in this cold city of glass buildings and gray rocks
  • In this church everything is super German. They sell a great variety of sausages and you can drive as fast as you want inside the church. Everywhere is beer and Lederhosen and a lot of internationally operating companies.
