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.

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 history.

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, it's a reminder of the battle that drove Danish invaders from their city. Tip: it's... 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 the 15th century carving of St. George Slaying the Dragon, it was magnificent.

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 impressive. I loved the exposed brick which succeeded in presenting the church as it was... 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 is "St George and the dragon"... It looks like it's trying to tell a fairy... 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.

It was a wet and windy day so it was nice to be inside. It was a beautiful cathedral, with lots of signs in English.

Staying in Gamla Stan & Riddarholmen

Neighbourhood Profile
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) alleys, which will make you feel like you’ve travelled back in time. This neighborhood offers a great combination of historical buildings and traditional Swedish restaurants.
