This street is about a ten-minute walk from home and a typical street for Södermalm, with one of those old wooden houses on the right, the cobblestones on the street, and the recognizable architecture of the house on the right. In the distance, part of Katarina Church can be seen. The church burned down twice; in 1723, and then again in 1990. It took five years to rebuild it, and now it looks like what it is: both a classic old church as well as a mostly brand new church. Whatever is your way of looking, it is certainly worth a visit. In the beautiful cemetery that surrounds the church, the Dutch-Swedish singer Cornelis Vreeswijk is buried. His grave is just a few steps away from the grave of the assassinated Foreign Minister Anna Lindh
