The Swedish word “Slottskyrkan” translates to Royal Chapel, which is within the Stockholm Palace. The interior church photos posted to TripAdvisor are a...More

Cathedral is located a few steps from Royal Palace. There is an admission charge but it is worth the price. Very ornate interior with beautiful statues and paintings - don’t miss the St George statue ( it’s huge so difficult not to see it )....More

It's easy to visit the chapel while visiting the Royal Palace, and definitely worth a peek inside. Note that this is not the same as the "Stockholm Cathedral", or Storkyrkan, just outside the Royal Palace area (Royal Chapel is inside, right across from the entrance...More

This is the Royal Chapel, located inside the Royal Palace, therefore it is sometimes used by the royal family at certain church ceremonies. Once inside in one of Sweden's most ornate churches (how The Royal Chapel is considered), take some time to admire some of...More

In this Church Crownprincess Victoria of Sweden married her husband Prince Daniel. Even King Carl XVI Gustaf of Sweden married Queen Silvia in this Church the same day but many years earlier.

This church is one of the most beautiful that we found in Scandinavia. It is a simple Lutheran building but it contains some fantastic memorials. One of the most marvellous is the 15c statue of St George, on horseback slaying a dragon, whilst perched on...More

This church gives a very mixed impression; the style is a bit simple baroque on the outside and more modern lighting inside - yet it has a much older history than that! This is also the site of several major royal weddings and christenings, as...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
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)
