Statue - Rosenbom

Visit Rosenbom - the city's most famous resident and put a coin in the poor box in Rosenbom's hat!

The church's poor box, known as "Rosenbom" is the first thing that greets a visitor at Amiralitetskyrkan. He is dressed in a costume worn by a sailor in the mid-1700's.

He has become world-famous by the author Selma Lagerlöf's "Nils Holgersson's wonderful journey through Sweden" when he rescued Nils from King Karl's XI anger.

"I humbly ask You although my voice is weak
Come and put down a coin
Upon lifting my hat..."
