Storkyrkan

Saint Nicolaus Church, commonly known as Storkyrkan (The Great Church), is the oldest church in the Old town. On this photo we see the church from its right side, from Högvaktsterrassen (Royal Guard terrace). The church is situated right next to the Royal Palace and if you look very closely you can see one of the royal guards. If you turn your head to your right you can see the Parliament.

And the church is reflected in the water puddles. A worthy symbol of our non-winter!

Please note, Per, there are some snow on the church roof!

Thanks all for commenting.

I like the warmth in this photo, and also the reflection of the church in the puddle.
