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.

Definitely stop by this cathedral. It's much smaller than I expected and it offered a wonderful yet compact glimpse into many centuries of Swedish culture.

The façade is pretty impressive but don't stop there. Venture inside to truly appreciate this historical monument. Great stories to accompany this stylish piece of architecture. Not to mention the tranquillity that the silence therein offers for the few minutes you spend there.

A beautiful if not exceptional church from outside, but inside it is stunning. The muted autumnal colours against plenty of gold bling make this a bright and dazzling place that is well worth a visit.

Worth going in to admire the gold interior and a huge statue of St George and the Dragon. Plenty of other points of interest including a model ship, stained glass and beautiful paintings.

Not the most ornate of cathedrals I have visited, but certainly take the time to visit. Guided tours in most languages are available.

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)

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!

I don't know but the Cathedral has a website. You could probably contact them with your request.
