St. Paul's Church (Danish: Sankt Pauls Kirke) is a Lutheran church in central Copenhagen, Denmark, also colloquially known as Nyboder's Church due to its location in the middle of the Nyboder area. It was designed by Johannes Emil Gnudtzmann and constructed from 1872 to 1877.HistoryThe church is part of a wave of church constructions which took place in Copenhagen in the 1870s to provide capacity for the city's growing population. Unlike the other new churches—St. Stephen's and St. James' in Østerbro and St. Mathew's in Vesterbro—St. Paul's was not built in one of the emerging districts outside the city's old fortifications which had just been decommissiom Johannes Emil Gnudtzmann was charged with the design of the new church, his first independent work as an architect, and it opened on 15 February 1877.ArchitectureThe church is built in red brick and the masonry is decorated with blinds, arches, columns and pinnacles on all corners.InteriorThe church's first altarpiece was a painting by Hendrick Krock entitled The Eucharist (Danish: Nadveren). In 1887 it was replaced by a gilded crucifix created by the sculptor Jens Adolf Jerichau, a donation from pastor Christian Møller.Work out when and for how long to visit St. Paul's Church and other Copenhagen attractions using our handy Copenhagen trip planner .

It is believed that the youth of the architect, who developed the project for the first time independently, has greatly influenced the appearance of the building. As a result, a beautiful church appeared in front of the people of Copenhagen, which blends several styles simultaneously. Therefore, the tower seems suspiciously like Italian designs, while the main building is usually Scandinavian. Despite this flaw, manifested in the form of borrowing, the author of the project managed to maintain full symmetry, and in general, did not come out the first pie of punishment!
オスターポール周辺街歩きで見た教会です。 イエルサレム教会の後に行きました。そんなに背は高くない教会で祭壇のある本堂の側面の造り（外観）などは印象的でした。土曜日の午前中でしたが、中に入る事ができず専ら外観観光のみとなりました。 more »This is the church I saw walking around the city of Otarpole. Went after Church of Jesus Salem. Not so tall. The building of the side of the main hall with the altar in the church was impressive. It was Saturday morning, but it was not possible to go inside, and it became only the appearance sightseeing.
