The exterior is more impressive than the interior. There was no guidance on what was sidnificant inside. You can wander around inside and look.

We had a brief drop at Växjö cathedral while passing nearby. The cathedral was under renovation, so not much chance to see the outside. However, the inside is splendid with a fantastic altar and other artifacts made of glass. Recommended.

We have attended a couple services at this church and it is a beautiful church with a well organized service. Below is a view of the church a block away with glasswork that resembles work at the alter of the church.

Lovely to see a Lutheran cathedral after seeing so many Catholic ones in southern Europe. This one had great contemporary arts projects throughout it, with secular themes about the earth, environment, and peace. Very nice place.

Off course you would expect fine glass things in Southern Smaaland´s, and that´s you get. Definitely worthwhile if in the neighborhood.

Lovely building, amazing interior, worth seeing on a visit to vaxjo... There is a coffee shop around the corner quiet and lovely view surrounding it. Quiet church . On the downside, not much tourist information about it.

As befits a big (really big) public building in this part of Sweden, art glass is everywhere. Don't miss the Tree of Life -- even if you don't light a candle (which is such a Roman Catholic "thing" in a Lutheran cathedral!).
