Roslags-Kulla church

Åkersberga, Österåker

Roslags-Kulla church was inaugurated 1706 after an older church on the same place had been demolished. The construction started on the initiative of the lord of the manor Östanå, Count Fabian Wrede. It is said that the timber for the church came from Finland, which might be possible because the forges in Wira consumed much timber and Fabian Wrede owned farms in Finland.

The church is cross-armed and has an onion dome. The church exterior panels were added in 1728 and the campanile was built in the 1750s. Roslags-Kulla church represents late baroque and is unique in Sweden due to its unaltered state.
