Stockholm, Sweden: Riddarholm Church

Let's start with the fact that the Riddarholm Church is one of the oldest buildings in Stockholm - it dates back to the 1200s in part. The structure is located on the island of Riddarholmen as part of metropolitan Stockholm.

You'd think that such a beautiful place would still be active. Alas, that part of the building's service ended more than 200 years ago. Now it's mostly a burial ground for old Swedish royalty. Those who pass away now wind up in a royal cemetery.

There are tours of the place, but apparently the window for visits can be small at certain times of the year.
