1. Mikaelskyrkan

Show sight on map

St. Michael's Church is a church building in Uppsala and belongs to the Cathedral Parish in Uppsala Diocese. The building is located on Skolgatan closest to the railway, and was built to serve what was then Uppsala's poorest area, Svartbäcken. The church could be built through a donation from August Mikael Posse. The church was designed by Axel Kumlien and consecrated on Mikaeldagen in 1892 and was at that time called Mikaelskapellet. The name here is not a saint's name, but comes from the donor's name. In the late 1800s, various preachers served at the chapel. Among other things, in 1893 evening prayers were held for about 300 boys on Wednesdays and about 500 girls on Thursdays. In 1940, the chapel underwent a thorough renovation. The large altar window was reattached and the interior was largely replaced. In 1960, the chapel was once again restored, and also came to be called St. Michael's Church. Only now did people begin to celebrate family services and perform baptisms in the church.
