An important religious monument, Matteus Kyrka Church, is located away from the city center. The church building is considered a striking Neo-Gothic monument built at the end of the 19th century. In the second half of the 19th century, Norrk√∂ping experienced rapid industrial growth, the city population has increased several times within just a few years. Such rapid development resulted in the need to build a new church, and it was decided to build it on the north side. Today, the church named after St. Matthew is located in a vast park. It is distinguished by its spectacular facade design and 64-meter tower. An interesting feature of the church is the bells installed in the tower. The largest bell weighs 2 107 kg. The interior of the church decorated with rare marbles and partially preserved gilded mosaic is also striking in its splendor.
One of the oldest churches in Norrk√∂ping is Sankt Olai Kyrka. The first church appeared in its place in the early Middle Ages, but in 1567, it was completely destroyed during one of the bloody battles. After the war ended, they started to rebuild the church, and the first stone was laid in 1614. The first and only reconstruction in the history of the church took place in 1870. Since its construction, it has managed to preserve many original elements of internal and external decoration.
