The St Peter's church in Malmö

The Gothic style St Peter's cathedral (Sankt Petri Kyrka in Swedish) is the oldest church in Malmö. Construction on it started in the beginning of the 14th century. The St Petri is very similar to the St. Mary's of Lübeck.

The tower of the church has changed shape several times. The present design of the 105 m (344 ft) tower is from the 1890s.

The white interior is from the 17th century.

The altar is said to be the largest wooden altar in Europe.

The organ is a 11,2 m Marcussen from 1951.

The pulpit is from 1599.

Another view of the pulpit.

There are many beautiful epitaphs in the St Petri.

The baptistery still retains the original vault and wall paintings.
Another general view.
