Very beautiful and interesting interior. See the crypts and tombs of ancient kings. Staff was very well informed and eager to help find your Swedish family crest (if applicable). Modern royaly is now longer buried here but at a cemetery near Drottingholm.

The church is very old and served as the final resting place of many kings. The interior is very detailed and the tombs remain. It’s not rebuilt like a lot of European churches as Stockholm avoided WW2 bombing. It’s a must see. A great old...More

You cannot miss the imposing cast iron spire but unfortunately it was closed when we went there. The church is a royal burial church, and was built as a Franciscan monastery for the so-called Grey Brother monks in the 13th century. The Riddarholm Church is...More

Riddarholm Church. Gamla Stan tends to be a bit
