- One of the most beautiful, authentic medieval churches in Stockholm, Riddarholmskyrkan was originally a Grey Friar monastery founded in 1270. Both Gustav Vasa and Gustav III intended to raze the church to the ground, but that fortunately didn't happen. Gustaf II is buried here. It's the spot he chose before going off for the Thirty Years' War. Riddarholsmkyrkan has no congregation of its own, but is used solely as a burial place and memorial church.
