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 cathedral is worth seeing and very centrally located. It is right by the royal palace. The highlight of the building is the gorgeous statue of St. George slain the dragon. It is very impressive and memorable. It represents the Sweden's defeat over Denmark.

We stopped in right before service was starting, but the inside was incredible. The gold trim and pictures were so beautiful. So cool to see this kind of history and that the cathedral is still used and maintained so well.

Interesting interior, with some delightful touches, but not really awe-inspiring. The Candle Globe beats the usual dull tiers of candles out of sight, and the deeply-cut vault covers are impressive. The statue of St George and the Dragon has a prominent position beside the altar,...More

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

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!
