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.

A very nice place to visit. It was built around century 13. It contains very nice treasure like the statue of San Jorge fighting with the dragon.

A nice inexpensive visit. Small brochure with information about some of the points of interest is available at the entrance. Nothing terribly special or grand, but other Catholics may enjoy especially.

It costs 40 kr to enter the cathedral but free with Stockholm pass. Not a very big place. Nice decorations but nothing very the top special. Stop by only you have time to spare :)

Scandinavian churches have a 'look' of their own. This one is particularly lovely with the red brick interior. If you like visiting churches, add this one to your list. It's in the old town so a nice area to stroll around.

Compared to other European cathedrals, the Stockholm Cathedral is an intimate treasure. The Sun Dog painting, the St George sculpture and the Candle Globe make the cathedral a "not to be missed" experience.

In the heart of old town, outside was not so attractive, but had wonderful interior. Sculptures, statues was really worth a visit.

This is the main church in the old town close to the Palace and next to the Nobel museum. It has a 40 SEK entrance fee. It is worth visiting if you are into churches and are in the area. Alternatively there are many other...More

As far as European capitol city cathedrals go, this one is on the small side. But that doesn't make it any less interesting or welcoming.

island of Stockholm and accompanied by the small
island of Riddarholmen, mainly known for its famous

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)

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!
