Stortorget & St. Nicolai Church

Stortorget (the town square) is one of Örebro’s most important historical places. This is where St. Nicolai Church is, the city’s principal church since the Middle Ages, but also the place where Jean Baptiste Bernadotte was elected heir to the throne in 1810. The neo-Gothic town hall is also on the square with its glockenspiel, which in winter houses Sweden’s largest advent calendar. It is also here in front of the church, that the largest Christmas concert, O Holy night, is performed every year on the 2nd Sunday of Advent.
