Stockholm: Adolf Fredrik
Back to Sweden►
Adolf Fredriks parish covers an area in the central Stockholm Norrmalm district a number of blocks north of the modern-day Centralstation (central railroad station) and a bit north of the island where the royal palace sits. The parish existed already by 1693 when household examination records begin and then dedicated, in 1774, the church building that still stands today. The church is built on the site where St Olofs chapel sat for a century before. In terms of the number of people it serves, Adolf Fredrik is one of the smaller parishes in urban Stockholm. The parish is named in honor of the king who laid the cornerstone for the church building.
