Adolf Fredriks kyrka ("The Church of Adolf Frederick") is a church in central Stockholm, Sweden. It was built in 1768-1774, replacing a wooden chapel from 1674, which was dedicated to Saint Olof. Its cemetery is where René Descartes was first buried in 1650, before his remains were moved to France. Inside the church a memorial to the memory of Descartes was installed by Gustav III. Other famous people buried in the church cemetery include Swedish Prime Minister Olof Palme who was assassinated only a block from the church, as well as Prime Minister Hjalmar Branting.
