North of Rome



This is from the inside of Jaervsoe (Järvsö) Church. 1400 people can be seated at the same time and it's therefore said to be the largest village church in Sweden. The architecture is inspired by the Italian school, and it looks like marple - but is plaster. Nevertheless, I think the decoration is very beautiful. Very simple and very clean.



Cheers,

It is very beautiful, Asta. Great photographs!

From what I've heard, though, I don't think there are 1400 people in Sweden who still go to church! :-)
