When you’re in Stockholm you just can’t afford to miss taking a walk through the renowned Gamla Stan (Old Town). That’s what we did on our recent trip to Stockholm by the Blå Tåget (Blue Train). Not only are there a lot of shops and restaurants in the streets of Gamla Stan but there are a lot to see as well. And while we did, we came to a street where a church was flocked with people. We were compelled to see then what’s interesting about the place. We learned by the info board outside the church that it’s the Tyska Kyrkan or the German Church.
We decided to get inside and it was, indeed, surprisingly dazzling. We were mesmerized by the interior look of the church. The architectural designs and the gold-ish embellishments are absolutely sublime.
I can’t explain the different parts of the church but I can tell it’s not the kind of a church I used to see being a Catholic. But some of the wall paintings and symbols resemble those we have in our church.
With the people admiring the interior design of the church and with some taking pictures no one can have a solemn moment while praying. Except, of course, during mass celebrations.
And look who’s dazzled by what he saw inside! He was having a good time looking around and like others admiring the too impressive church.
This is where we got in. I’m not sure if this is the only entrance of the church though. Tyska Kyrkan (the German Church) is one of the many attractions you’ll see when you walk through Gamla Stan in Stockholm.
