Sure its big, and a landmark for Uppsala, but it does look like all other churches around. If I were you I would rather go to 7/11 at the trainstation and buy five cinnamon buns for 49 kr.

A somewhat rugged version of your basic cathedral. If you are from scandinavia its worth the visit, if for nothing else, just from a historical viewpoint. One can only wonder what the poor clergymen from the outreaches of kingdom must have thought of its majesty a century after it was built. The neon light banner inside the church was tasteless.

This cathedral was equal amounts of beautiful, powerful, charming and romantic. I am not religious but I like religious structures. This one was one of the most memorable and moving.

The beautiful Uppsala Cathedral (Swedish: Uppsala domkyrka) is built was designed in the French Gothic style. Most of the structure was built between 1272 and 1420.

Amazing looking cathedral, with large central spire. Entrance is free and there is information all around it on the different sections. Each individual side chapel has great designs as does the whole cathedral, definitely not minimalist, all internal walls are painted and designed. Some exhibitions in the central and side areas. No old style organ but everything else is original... More

The highlight of our Uppsala stay, do not miss it ! 800 years of history in a breathtakingly tall French Gothic building which is majestic. And, once finished, do not forget poppinto into the Gustavianum just opposite, with its amazing anatomical theatre !

One of main attractions in Uppsala. Huge gothic cathedral, still stands in all its glory, with lovely decoration, high columns and the play of light. A lot of things to see inside.

A huge church , grandiose and breathtaking construction, very well presented , accessible to tourists and very well organized. It is the most serious reason to visit Uppsala unless you are a student at the local university.

A nice 13ths century cathedral, not many of them in Sweden, been told it is the oldest church in Sweden. Many kings are buried in it, with the most famous of all, Saint Erik. Worse a visit of you go to Uppsala.
