We didn't take any photos in this Cathedral in compliance with the 'No photos' sign. We were surprised at how calm and relaxing the interior appeared being painted largely in white with the odd gold covered embellishment.

Cathedral of Gothenburg was founded in 1600s and last rebuilt in 1815. It is of neoclassical style and interior is enhanced with white, grey and gold colors. Worth stopping for a short visit.

If you are strolling by and it is open then you should look inside. But it is nothing special - the Stockholm churches are more interesting architecturally.

Beautiful church with a golden inside. Huge organ. Almost always open if you want to light a candle for someone. In Christmas times they do a small nativity scene and sometimes they have a live nativity scene outside, sometimes also with even a camel!

Stumbled upon this while exploring the streets of Gothenburg. It's a nice church from the outside, although doesn't seem particularly old. I didn't go inside but I had a walk around the gardens which were colourful for this time of year. Surprisingly peaceful despite being...More

I am not a snob but I didnt like it. I was expecting more for this landmark. don't get me wrong, it is nice but Goteborg has better looking churches around to reveal old architecture, Annedalskyrkan, Hagakyrkan, etc. It doesn't have the old feel. It...More

We had a short visit to the Gustavi Cathedral. A very nice and simple setting with a gorgeous altar. A typical Scandinavian church to us, but a very nice one.

This is the cathedral for the entire bishopric. The inside is lovely. And the accoustics are phenomenal. They have a great music program and their acapela (sp) choir is outstanding. Check times for frequent free concerts at noon.

We loved the white open clean feeling of this cathedral and the simple but elegant design inside. Outside it appears like an old building, but inside fresh and new. An uplifting place to worship in. Worthwhile to stop in and view as different from other...More

The Gustavi Cathedral has a typical Scandinavian interior, which you don't expect seeing the outside. The building is absolutely worth a short visit. It shows also a little bit of the typical Swedish way of life.
