Despite its actual purpose of being a cemetery garden – Katarina Kyrkogård feels very much alive. It’s located on Södermalm’s heights and close to both busier streets as well as cute and quiet cobbled alleys with magnificent views over Stockholm.
The yellow little church was first built in 1695, but has since then suffered two fires. Stubbornly enough though it has been rebuilt, and today the area really serves its purpose of being a peaceful place and yet a well-attended promenade.
It’s not the type of park to bring a six-pack to and put your playlist on max at – do rather pay a visit when you want some peace and quiet, stroll around on a beautiful wintery day, and maybe clear your head(ache?)
