Tyska Kyrkan Weather Vane

From afar, weather vanes look like tiny structures swiveling in the wind. But get close to one, and you’ll realize they’re actually quite large. This one’s size isn’t the most impressive thing about it, as it’s a survivor of a devastating blaze.

Gamla Stan’s Tyska Kyrkan, or Old Town’s German Church, was built in 1672 for Stockholm’s growing German population. Starting out with a guild, school, and later the church, the Germans built a tiny enclave in the city which remains there to this day.
