History at it's best...the final resting place of Saint Birgitta. Be sure to attend one of the Daily Masses held nearby with the Birgittas Nuns

For sweden, a nice and big church. During our visit confirmation was ongoing, so we had to keep to the sides. Still, I like the atmosphere of the church and recommend a visit.

The town of Vadstena is very nice to see but not more than half oa day. The church and the surroudings are worth a little. The highlight for me, a wonderful piece of wood art in this church, I'll say no more.

Went there for a day and I must say that it was a charming village with a beautiful setting by the lake. The church was beautiful. Calm and definitely worth a visit.
