    The Catholic Church

    by fairy_dust Updated Apr 4, 2011

    There is a Catholic parish in Sundsvall, and it's a nice little place. There are Swedes there, but also many immigrants from all over the world. Seeing the different ethnicities come together shows that Sundsvall is becoming multi-cultural, and the local Swedes are very accepting of foreigners. Everyone is very friendly, and most speak English (although Mass is in Swedish). After Sunday Mass, they usually have coffee and snacks in the back room and time for socializing. If you're Catholic, this is the place to go for Sunday Mass.

    The building is a big yellow house with "Katolska Kyrkan" written on it. It is on Nybrogatan. But I think they're going renovate or get a new building, so the appearance and/or address might change.

    Up the river

    a mini-waterfall/brook

    There is a lake at Sodra Berget, and to get there you can walk along the roads, but if you go along the river, it's very beautiful, especially on a sunny day. There are brooks, little waterfalls, little bridges, and sometimes you can climb up the rocks (be careful while doing this!). You might encounter a duck or two on the way. You can go from the point at Bergsgatan (gatan means street in Swedish) where the river is (I think it flows under a bridge at that part), and walk up to Sidsjo.
