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 cathedral is very simple on the outside, but beautiful on the inside. We were there right after a service (which all are welcome to attend). Make sure you walk to the fornt to see the Geaorge and the Dragon statue. Well worht a visit.

This is a very attractive old religious structure right in the centre of Gamla Stan. Unfortunately, visiting late on a Friday afternoon on a cold and rainyday, it wasn't open and so I had to be content with viewing the exterior. Impressive, but a shame to have missed the interior.

I am from Stockholm and took my extended family to visit the Cathedral in 2016. Seeing it from a tourist view point, I think the gothic style of architecture and beautiful paintings are worth seeing...even if you have lived in the city for sometime :)

Worth seeing if you enjoy architecture, and it gives a sense of the wealth of Swedish society in years past.

I would not have paid to go in but a donation is asked for (best to use the Stockholm pass for free entry to so many attractions). The inside is really lovely and worth visiting

Near to the Royal palace is Storkyrkan, it is quite understated from the outside but spare a few minutes and head inside. It is spacious, grand display and colours and a rather surprise design of the alter.

Does not have the ornate grandeur of many other such cathedrals but is worth visiting even just to see the magnificent statue of St George killing the dragon.

Beautiful cathedral in the Old Town of Stockholm. To sit down for a few minutes and let the impressions work on you is just the right thing after a lot of walking. What I liked best was the sculpture of St George and the dragon which is beautifully crafted.

Staying in Gamla Stan & Riddarholmen

Neighbourhood Profile
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) alleys, which will make you feel like you’ve travelled back in time. This neighborhood offers a great combination of historical buildings and traditional Swedish restaurants.
