Better inside than out.

Well worth finding time to visit as the outside is not nealy as attractive. Opening hours can be limited as it is a working church.

St Petri is the oldest church building in Malmö and the oldest one built with brick. Dating from the 14th century the interior has been remodeled several times during the 700 years.

In a town of so few items of true tourist worth its hard to get too excited about this church as it's not that amazing in any particular way. It was one of the top 10 things to see in Malmo

We visited this church on a Monday within the publicised opening times and it was not open. This was disappointing. It is, however, worth a visit to look at the architecture from the outside.

The church is well maintained, accessible and invites participation. Exceptional bapistry, organ and pulpit, all complimented by the petition area where you are invited to pray.

Malmo itself is not a big city, though it's the third Swedish town. So, when you see such building like this, it's always catching your eye. Enormous one, it's even difficult to fill it in a standard photo snap. Must see.
