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.

Not to miss if you're in the Old Town. Make sure you see the statue of St. George fighting the dragon, the organ and the ornate altar and pulpit.

Not to big and free for visit. You can pop in the cathedrals while traveling around the old city. I love the spherical candlestick the most for I did not see such kind of candlestick before.

We were here in mid-winter so it was nice to come into the cathedral to get out of the cold. But the cathedral is well worth visiting.

This is a lovely Cathedral and not too large. It doesn't take very long to see it. It has a beautiful large wooden statue of St. George Slaying the Dragon.

A peace descends on you when you enter this beautiful place. There are some wonderful carvings to view and some fine architecture both inside and out. With or without a faith this is definitely worth a visit

Not very big for a cathedral but very impressive. Inside there are some real hidden gems, my favourites being St George and The Dragon, The Seven-Branched Candlestick and The Candle Globe. The red brick makes it feel modern and fresh as did the colours in...More

The cathedral dated back to the 13th century. At one time, the church was Catholic but Petri talked Gustav Vasa to change it to Protestant. Royal weddings are held here, the last being Princess Victoria in 2010. The large ornate Saint George and the Dragon...More

Go there and feel like your ancestors! The place make me feel good energy, is not beatiful, but is a great place to learn about how a Christianity try to grow in Sweden!

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)

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!

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