There is a pretty big yellow church in the middle of the Sophia side of Södermalm. Apparently, the church isn't as old as it looks because it was rebuilt in 1992 after it was heavily damaged during a fire in the early 90's.

The graveyard was lit tonight, I suppose the remainders of All Saints Day. Walking through the graveyard is moving and eerie. Many of the graves were for 2004 Thailand Tsunami victims, and other high-profile graves such as Anna Lindh, Sweden's Foreign Minister who was stabbed to death in a department store in 2003.

It is a peaceful yard and a nice place to be laid to rest. And a good place to walk on Canadian Remembrance Day.
