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.

The old had to make room for the new so they blew out the back wall and built a so-so looking modern church where Mass is held. The old is lovely and worthy of photos. Staff volunteers are in red blazers. This made it easy...More

Stockholm Cathedral - known as Storykyrkan locally - is located in Gamla Stan right next to the royal palace. It is well worth a visit. The overall style is Gothic and it has several famous art pieces, including a wooden statue of St. George and...More

This is a great venue to see while in Gamla Stan, but alone worth it for the amazing statue of St. George slaying the dragon. It is fun to think about recent weddings of Swedish Royals in this historic cathedral, which embodies much of Swedish...More

The 60 SEK admission charge seems rather steep, and I wouldn't rank this cathedral among Europe's most beautiful. What made my visit worthwhile was the magnificent wooden statue of St. George slaying the dragon, installed in the late 15th century. To the people of Stockholm,...More

Our first attempt to get into the cathedral failed as there was a wedding taking place, but as soon as this passed we were allowed in. The cathedrsal is lovely and light with great stained glass and exposed brick work. The highlight for me was...More

So many different aspects of this cathedral make it uniquely Swedish although very grand not ostentatious, wonderful carvings and a magnificent silver altar and then there is the carved St George and the dragon which is superb.

A beautiful church that is an essential site in Gamla Stan. The statue of St. George is much larger and much more impressive than I thought it would be (Look for the use of moose antlers on the dragon). The silver altar was also very...More

The carvings on the wall are quite special and different as some of them are skulls. And a lot of things are painted in black. It gives a very strong "gothic / death" feeling. Near the middle at the front, the most eye catching sculpture...More

I have had the chance to visit many cathedrals. This one is breathtaking. Built around 1200 the interior is remarkable and contains many treasure. It is a museum by itself. Not to be missed

Its a church, you've seen one you've seen them all imho, but its the best one to visit in Stockholm especially with the St George and the Dragon wooden statue. But elsewhere at Gamla Stan there is another at Köpmanbrinken that's well worth locating.

Gamla Stan & Riddarholmen
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)

We'll be visiting Stockholm, for the first time, this July. We'd really like to hear an organ concert at the Storkyrkan cathedral but haven't been able to find a schedule/program in English. Help, please.

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!
Anyway to pay an organist to play the organ for a half hour or so of Bach music? Either June 25 or 26 or July 3 or 4? We are taking a cruise from Stockholm.

I don't know but the Cathedral has a website. You could probably contact them with your request.
