St Nikolai Kyrka information
The 13th-century St Nikolai Kyrka has some historical interest: it’s where Jean Baptiste Bernadotte (Napoleon’s marshal) was chosen to take the Swedish throne.
Just opposite, on Drottninggatan, is the Rådhus (town hall); if you’re around at the right time, stop to hear the chimes (12.05pm and 6.05pm year-round, plus 9pm June to September), when sculptures representing the city’s past, present and future come wheeling out of a high arched window.
