    You have uploaded several photos that show churches. I wonder now, are their different architectural styles when it comes to churches in Sweden the past few centuries?

    https://www.flickr.com/photos/mazdamiata Yes, Swedish churches have been built in different styles and with different materials during the centuries. We hope that the images in our Flickr Commons album "Old churches" (from a large archive collection with photographs of Swedish churches) can show you some samples of that. /Anna B.

    https://www.flickr.com/photos/swedish_heritage_board Thanks for pointing me to that album. Obviously, a big difference between city and rural churches, but I'm surprised by the many different small churches.

    [https://www.flickr.com/photos/mazdamiata] Glad you appreciate our album Old churches! Larger stone churches were often built in towns, and in wealthier agricultural provinces, as the Island of Gotland. Small chapels - often in wood - could be built In more remote parts of Sweden, with poorer financial resources. Wood was also often used in areas where wood was a frequent material. Hope you'll enjoy the church images to come... /Anna B.
