Beautiful place in the center of the city, visible and accesible from all sides. I never hoped to see an Orthodox icon in a protestant church!!!

The old town is not huge so it's not difficult to find this church. It's worth a quick look inside as well as a photo outside as you walk around Malmo.

Not a very nice place to visit because of a lot of traffic and problem with parking spots. I would recommend another

A recommendation from the desk at the Mayfair Hotel Tunneln, which is around the corner virtually. It was cold out and nice to duck into places as we walked around. Once in the church, one got a real sense of the history of this magnificent building and historic place. Having visited it was worth looking up the history of this... More

This is a wonderful, actively used building. The design is very interesting. The church sits right in the middle of a shopping district, and you can see it from all over the city.

The church is open from 10 to 18, so it is quite easy to go inside and have a look. Very central, in the heart of the old town.

We walked around the outside and it's beautiful. Went in and they were preparing some performance from school kids. So we didn't want to disturb them too much and just walk around a bit . It was very nicely renovated inside.
