Church of St. Matthew
This gothic revival church was designed by Helgo Zettervall and stood finished in 1892. The exterior is quite impressive but the interior left me disappointed, mostly because the lack of height. What's the point of erecting a great gothic building if the nave isn't reaching for the sky? Several chandeliers hung from the cealing as well, further diminishing the sense of height. Also note the lack of cross-ribbed vaulting except for in the apse.
