Let’s Go Church Spotting – Part 2, Adolf Fredrik

28 May

This Sunday me and my fiancé went to Stockholm C for some photographing and shopping. Andreas bought himself a new camera last week, so he felt the urge of getting out taking some photos. Well, me too! Especially since we visited a church and some lovely gardens.

First of all we went church spotting again. This time we went to Adolf Fredrik Church located in the city, beside Sveavägen. The church was built 1768 – 1774 and replaced a wooden chapel that was standing on that ground before.

There are some famous persons buried here on the church grounds. Prime minister Olof Palme, who was assassinated in 1986 has his tomb here, also the prime minister and founder of the Swedish Social Democratic Party, Hjalmar Branting. Two very prominent persons in Sweden, be sure you read about them. Very interesting indeed.
