Very striking, this church has burnt down & been rebuilt several times. Right in the centre it's impressive from the outside, the interior is plain but very light. Perhaps because it was a summer weekend but there seemed to be a lot of music both...More

Classical cathedral at the Goteborg city center - just visit it for 5 minutes , sit and enjoy silence , clean lines and organ.

We didn't take any photos in this Cathedral in compliance with the 'No photos' sign. We were surprised at how calm and relaxing the interior appeared being painted largely in white with the odd gold covered embellishment.

Cathedral of Gothenburg was founded in 1600s and last rebuilt in 1815. It is of neoclassical style and interior is enhanced with white, grey and gold colors. Worth stopping for a short visit.

If you are strolling by and it is open then you should look inside. But it is nothing special - the Stockholm churches are more interesting architecturally.

Beautiful church with a golden inside. Huge organ. Almost always open if you want to light a candle for someone. In Christmas times they do a small nativity scene and sometimes they have a live nativity scene outside, sometimes also with even a camel!

We had a short visit to the Gustavi Cathedral. A very nice and simple setting with a gorgeous altar. A typical Scandinavian church to us, but a very nice one.
