Gamla Stan - drop in.

From outside it is very impressive. Inside is simple, but the kings tombs are very interesting. The coat of arms are also very interesting.

Very impressive church, with fascinating coats of arms and spire. A short walk from the castle beside the canal.

Even though there was construction going on, this is worth the visit. The 100 's of coat-of-arms are interesting. Spire is fascinating. Worth a short visit and walk.

We love old churches so this was a nice addition to our many countries and churches and cathedrals. Lovely architecture. Great for a quick visit.

We only took a look from the outside, one of the oldest buildings in Stockholm with it's pointed cast iron spire, worth a look if in the area.

The is one of the best looking churches in Stockholm (imo). Therefore we wanted to visit and see it even in inside. You have to pay 50 SEK with card (no cash allow). Interior is humble (as it usually is in evangelic churches) but you get to see dozens of heraldry and some tombs of kings (maybe?). I believe it... More

This is not the nicest building in the city, but it is there and easily accessible so why not just visit and take a nice couple of pictures.

I was in Stockholm in the middle of december and one of my goals was visiting this beautiful church and the kings graves inside. Unfortunately i realised it's open only two months at year! that really disappointed me. I couldn't believe it, so my review is negative. That was a pity because the exteriors are impressive.

The exterior is beautiful on the oldest church in Stockholm, but apparently it is closed a lot of the time. I had no luck getting inside but I'm not sure why

Being that Riddarholm Church (Riddarholmskyrkan) is one of the oldest buildings in Stockholm (dating back to the 13th century), it's well worth a look. And since it's located opposite Gamla Stan, you're most certainly going to see it from various parts of the city! It's spires are lovely and it's definitely worth walking around the grounds. Stand beside it and... More
