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.

I visited the Storkyrka for one of the many concerts held there and was impressed by the inner Gothic style which strikes a contrast with the Baroque outside. The metal statue of St. George and the Dragon is an amazing work of art.

This was on my bucket list while I was in Stockholm and I lucked into visiting it on a free admission day. It's beautiful, if somewhat stark, as the old Catholic decorations one would expect were removed after the Reformation. It's a lovely place though....More

The carvings, the atmosphere..if you are in Stockholm to see the history, do not miss this beautiful Cathedral. The church happened to be empty except for us when we visited, it was humbling and we were amazed at every sight.

Very impressive and beautiful space. The organ alone is worth seeing. Free concerts are held and I wish I could have made it back to attend.

Intriguing architecture- interior unlike any cathedral I had seen before. Worth a visit, but not a must-see.

We enjoyed spending 30 minutes viewing the art and reading about the history. Definitely worth a stop on your Stockholm tour. The Royal weddings took place here.

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

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!
