Gustaf Vasa Church (4)

...previously on pixels

Lena suggested we should take a look inside Gustaf Vasa Church as well. That was a piece of good advice. Here's the altar with magnificent sculptures, all in baroque style and originally created for the cathedral in Uppsala by carver Burchard Precht.

Oh, you remembered my advice! I think I must remind myself going inside again and have a look.You must not go far away to feel you are in Rome...
(Do you know there is a possibility to be there for ever, you can buy a place in the "columbarium"under the churchfloor. I do not know much about it,I just heard about it when I studied religion many years ago. Perhaps all places are sold???)
Well, let us think of something nicer, the wonderful weather for example.I picked tussilago farfara (lat.) today!

The interior of the Church is indeed impressive - some truly stunning sculptures! Thanks for sharing them - perhaps you would like to also view our pictures and perhaps add some to the travel community at trivago?
Regards,
Pierre

That Rome feeling is something special, Lena. They say all roads lead there, apparently that's true for the subway to Odenplan as well.

Olivier, Destitute Rebel, Paz: I agree, it's so beautiful.

Fredrik: Thanks, I was pretty happy with that angle. Glad you like it.

PierreJ: Appreciate the link.

Thanks all for stopping by. We'll return here for another interior view.
