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.

Stockholm cathedral is a simple religious building ommitting the glamour of many european cities - we found this pleasantly refreshing for a religious building and enjoyed our visit

The Stockholm Cathedral (Storkyrkan) was great to visit - not as massive as many cathedrals you'd see in Europe but still with its own grandeur and unique style

We were privileged to visit when a youth choir was rehearsing a mass - it was beautiful - sung in Latin. Interesting architecture - and history.

The sculpture of St George and the Dragon is magnificent, much bigger than I expected. The church also has many beautiful paintings, including one that takes up an entire wall.

Timed the cathedral for just before the changing of the guard at the royal palace. Just outside there's a great little cafe, where you can have a coffee or a bite to eat.

This medieval cathedral is rather plain compared to cathedral's like Notre Dame in Paris. We enjoyed its simplicity. Especially nice was St. George and the Dragon sculpture; parts made from moose racks. Truly spectacular. Paid admission though.

This is a lovely Scandinavian Church, but relatively simple and even austere compared to cathedrals and churches like Notre Dame, St. Paul's, or cathedrals in Pisa and Florence, to name a few. Compared with other churches in Stockholm, like the palace chapel or the Riddarholmen...More

The church was closed, and it was during a working day, September 13. Dont know how, dont know why. Yellow note in Swedish at the entrance and a big door closed. A little disappointed as I know the church is more beautiful inside than out.

This beautiful cathedral is a must when visiting Stockholm. The ceilings are amazing . The Swedish people call it Storkyrkan . There are many graves inside the church as well. It is a medieval church built over 700 years ago. You will not be disappointed.

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)

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!
