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.

A beautiful Church at a smaller scale and more comfortable setting. We were able to catch an organ Concert, which made the experience much more powerful.

Most scandavian churches are not very ornate. I enjoyed visiting this one because it is more decorative. I especially loved the dragon statue to the left of the altar.

Beautiful cathedral both inside and out. Free to go in and worth a stop, especially if there’s a concert/orchestra practicing.

While in the old town you must pay a visit to this church near the Royal Palace. It's newly renovated and gives concerts (we can recommend the Chistmas concerts) and guided tours.

I visited the Storkyrka for one of the many concerts held there and was impressed by the inner Gothic style which strikes a contrast with the Baroque outside. The metal statue of St. George and the Dragon is an amazing work of art.

island of Riddarholmen, mainly known for its famous

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)

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!
