Owner description: 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.

We walked in here without expecting much, and not only there was an organ concert but also the interior in this church is really very nice. Be sure not to miss the statue of Saint George defeating the dragon to get his people convert to Christianity. Over all...very nice artwork and windows. There are certainly more impressive churches but it... More

My teenage children weren't really interested in visiting the cathedral, but even they found some things to wonder at! The 15th century statue of St George and the dragon is amazing, and the spherical candle holder alone is worth popping in here to have a look. Many other beautiful and unusual works of art in a lovely space. They hold... More

It's amazing and beautiful. Very rich history. There are so many tombs to see. Beautiful sculpture. Ornate alters. Breathtaking 13th century.

This Cathedral (locally known as Stockholms Domkyrkoförsamling, or St Nicolas Cathedral) is just outside the Royal Palace. Between the Palace and the Old Town shopping streets. A good place to sit down and meditate.

This is a great cathedral to visit. Not as stunning as other cathedrals I've been to, but I love the art works in this cathedral. I am absolutely mad with the sculpture of St. George and the Dragon and with Sweden's largest painting "The Last Judgment". They were next to each and I was in between them for a very... More

This is the Stockholm's oldest Cathedral, dating from the 13th century, and rebuilt and widened afterwards. It is in the middle of the Gamla Stan island, the very city center, right behind the Royal Palace. There's a 40 SEK entrance fee (5 Eur), but free with Stockholm Card (DO BUY it). The Church is known for Royal family ceremonies, and... More

There is some beautiful art and sculpture there and some fascinating old tombs. The main alter is the most impressive, ebony and silver.

This church is a must. Its history is intresting. Outside it looks just as a ordinary boring Lutheran church, but inside you feel the history! St Göran (George) is amazing! This a absolute must! Even if there is an admission fee...to a church...

When you're walking through the Old Town, the temptation is to skip this church because of the admission fee. Don't. It's worth it for a couple of reasons. First, it's fun to see churches that started out as elaborate Catholic churches, and then became austere Protestant during the Reformation. This one isn't that austere. There's a magnificent statue of Saint... More
