Stockholm Cathedral is a church located at 1 Traangsund in Gamla Stan. Lovely inside. 60 SEK each to go in.

The interior of Stockholm cathedral is really quite beautiful, and is much more impressive than it appears from the outside. The gothic brick arches really stand out against the white plaster and the organ is impressive.

The Stockholm Cathedral is a beautiful church near the Royal Palace. I wouldn't go out of your way to go there, but if you are in the area it is worth stopping by. They also do tours of the tower.

This is a great church to visit if you have 30-40min extra time in Gamla Stan. The art and statues are gorgeous and it’s brick interior makes it a bit different than a typical European church.

Stockholm is not particularly known for their large expansive churches that you will see in some of the other large cities but this one is worthy of seeing.

On a city walking tour we came across the replica of St George and were told the original, which is carved out of oak, was in the cathedral. So of course that meant we had to return during our free time. We were not disappointed....More

This cathedral is quite large. It’s near the royal palace but not connected. The thing I liked the best were the huge statues and the sense of how things must have seemed in the church 500 years ago. It was a very nice experience.

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)

It’s really not very big - smaller than some standard churches - and a decent guide book coupled with Google will tell you the chief facts. I wouldn’t say a guide was needed.

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!
