Beautiful architecture and a most peaceful of places, where you can saunter around quietly admiring the wooden carvings...ceilings and magical floors. You have to be respectful here...and it's a gem of a place about where you would not expect to see it. Free to enter...More

Being from the United States, I love all cathedrals big and small as we have nothing of the sort over there. But this one is particularly beautiful and surprisingly large and lovely for being in a relatively small town. A beautiful place to stop for...More

Swedish cathedrals usually can't measure up to any Catholic cathedral when it comes to artwork and decorations. This cathedral is no exception. It's rather grey and boring on the inside, but being one of Sweden's oldest cathedrals, there are details in the architectural design that...More
