Overview

Dating back to the 13th century, this church has a distinct character and history. It is the oldest in the Old Town and is home to several relics as well as an impressive statue of Saint George fighting the Dragon. Storkyrkan can pique almost anyone's curiosity, not just the history buff's.

There is a record of a church on this site since 1279 and some of the current structure dates to 1306. The church reached its current configuration in the 1480s. Particularly impressive was the oak carving of St. George and the Dragon from 1489. Also...More

This cathedral is quite unusual, as it is made of brick. It is free to admire from the inside. While not a "must see" it makes a nice rest stop during your tour of Gamla Stan, as you can sit in the pews and reflect...More

You don't go to Sweden for the Churches unless you are Lutheran and Lutheran chic means plain. The Storkyrkan is not actually a cathedral either but has been the setting for coronations of Swedish royalty who used to hang out just across the way. The...More

The cathedral doesn't look much from the outside- it doesn't look like a typical cathedral. When you go inside it is nothing special. When I visited they had some artifacts from Queen Kristina's coronation in the 1600s which was interesting. To be honest I'd save...More

Gamla Stan is Stockholm’s historic old town and home
to the Swedish Royal Palace. It’s the most central
island of Stockholm and accompanied by the small
island of Riddarholmen, mainly known for its famous
Riddarholm Church. Gamla Stan tends to be a bit
touristy at times but is definitely worth visiting:
take a stroll past the well-preserved buildings and
through the small (and also Sweden’s narrowest)

It’s really not very big - smaller than some standard churches - and a decent guide book coupled with Google will tell you the chief facts. I wouldn’t say a guide was needed.

The visitor centers in Uppsala and Stockholm are incredibly helpful. Check out the schedules posted throughout both cities. The train stations are a great place to find good venues. Lots of beautiful music everywhere!
