The medieval church of Slöta was burned down by Danish troops no less than three times: 1278, 1450 and 1566. It was finally demolished after it was once again burned down by lightning in 1754. The present Gustavian style church was completed in 1820.

There are some artefacts surviving from the older churches like the font dating from the 12th century and pulpit made in 18th century.

Peace Palace

The Peace Palace (Vredespaleis) is an administrative building and often called the seat of international law because it houses the International Court of Justice (which is the principal judicial body of the United Nations), the Permanent Court of Arbitration, the Hague Academy of International Law, and the extensive Peace Palace Library. In addition to hosting these institutions, the Palace is also a regular venue for special events in international policy and law. The Palace officially opened on 28 August 1913, and was originally built to provide a symbolic home for the Permanent Court of Arbitration, a court created to end war which was created by treaty at the 1899 Hague Peace Conference.
