Fredriks kyrka ("The Church of Adolf Fredrik") is a church in central Stockholm. It was designed and built by architect Carl Fredrik Adelcrantz in 1768-1774, replacing a wooden chapel from 1674, which was dedicated to Saint Olof. The interior was remodelled 1893-1895 by architect Agi Lindegren.

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.
