Inspired Sunday: St Peter's Church, Malmö
Sankt Petri kyrka (St Peter's Church) is the oldest church in Malmö (Sweden) and was originally the only parish church of the city. Construction began in the early 14th century. The church was constructed with red bricks and was built as a Gothic basilica.
The pulpit was inaugurated in 1599.
The altarpiece from 1611 is made of oak wood and reaches a height of 15 metres (49 ft).
A side-chapel is richly decorated with late medieval frescos covering both the walls and the vaulted ceiling, and showing both secular and religious motifs.
