The Saint Nicholas Church (Swedish: Sankt Nikolai kyrka) or the Nicholas Church (Swedish: Nikolaikyrkan) is a church building in central Örebro, Sweden. It was originally called the Örebro Church (Swedish: Örebro kyrka) because it was the only Church of Sweden church building in town until the early 20th century. It belongs to the Örebro Nicholas Parish of the Church of Sweden. Construction began in the late 13th century. The church is supposed to have been completed by the mid 14th century.[1]
