St. Petri Kyrka - St. Peter's Church

Here are some pictures of St. Peter's Church in Malmö, Sweden.  It was founded in the beginning of the 14th century.  All of it is built in the Baltic Gothic style, with flying buttresses and elegant arches soaring over aisles. 

There is a towering alter piece that was consecrated in 1611.  The four pictures, placed one above the other, depict the institution of the Lord's Supper, the Crucifixion, the Ascension and the Glorification.  The floor of the Church was at one time entirely covered with gravestones.
