Solna Church (Swedish: Solna kyrka) is a so-called round church in Solna Municipality near Stockholm, Sweden. The oldest parts of the church are from the later 12th century, a Romanesque fortress church built in stone as a defensive stronghold of the village. Indeed, in this region of Sweden, Karelian raids were commonplace, as evidenced by the looting of the nearby town of Sigtuna in 1187. Although the church has retained most of its medieval exterior form, the church's interior decoration dates back to the 17th century. The building was restored in 1928.
A beautiful commemorative silver medal.
