Overview

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.

The architecture and the art in this building was absolutely stunning. We enjoyed walking around and taking photos. It may have been more interesting with a guided tour, but unfortunately, we didn't have time for that.

Arrived near the end of a service. Only 20 people were there, but they welcomed tourists most cordially. The acoustics are astounding

The cathedral has a rather unimpressive exterior but the real joy is the interior, built of brick rather than the usual stone or marble, it seems to give the building a rather warm and welcoming feel. The admission charge is 60kr (June 2018) and you...More

This enormous cathedral church is well worth a visit. Interior columns are brick-built rather than marble as is usual. The stunning altar is silver and topped by a lovely rose window. The royal boxes are huge! I was fortunate to be there when the organist...More

It is a large and dramatic cathedral. A picture inside the entrance show how the structure was once prominently situated in Gamla stan. In more recent times several of the royal family members were married in Storkyrkan. St Gorge and the dragon monument is intricately...More

In the heart of the old town this brightly coloured grand structure is included in the Stockholm Pass, and has an interesting interior and organ. Thanks for the vote if you found this review helpful.

This church awes you as soon as you enter. The 700+ years of history is evident wherever you look, and the art and architecture are amazing. Oddly, this isn't one of Stockholm's most eye-catching churches on the outside, but it's still impressive. One odd bit...More

What I found most interesting at this Cathedral was the Coats of Arms of those knighted/acknowledged by the Royals (for example, we did not know Nelson Mandela had a Coat of Arms).

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!
