Saint James Church (Sankt Jacobs Kyrka) - STOCKHOLM
Saint James Church (in Swedish: Sankt Jacobs Kyrka) is a church in Kungsträdgården in central Stockholm, Sweden, dedicated to apostle Saint James the Greater, patron saint of travellers.
The church took centuries to build, and therefore features a variety of styles: Late Gothic, Renaissance and Baroque. At different times, various architects had worked on its design, including Willem Boy (1580–93), Hans Ferster (1635–43), Göran Joshuae Adelcrantz and Carl Hårleman (1723–35), Carl Möller and Agi Lindegren (1893–94).
The church is often mistakenly called St Jacob's. The confusion arises because Swedish, like many other languages, uses the same name for both James and Jacob.
