The Swedish history from the Vikings through to modern times can be understood through visiting the cathedral. No vikings are present here, but the building of the cathedral was an effect of the poor harbour conditions a bit up north in Old Uppsala, where the first church on pagan grounds was built. At that time Uppsala was the center of... More

An impressive church, especially on the inside. When we were visiting the church, a high mass was in progress and therefore we were not able to walk around and watch the many beautiful artifacts. However, we could experience the brilliant acoustics during the mass. Very recommended!

Beautiful cathedral, the largest in Scadinavia and a must see in Uppsala. The centre of the city, as tall as is is long. Free entry, takes about an hour to look around in detail. Don't miss the ancient tapestry.

It is one of the oldest and tallest church in Scandinavia. It is visible from long distance. Carl von Linne tomb is in it. Neighbourhood of famous scientists and kings make philosopher mind. Only this should definitely pay attention while in Uppsala.

I am of course biased in the sense that I live in Uppsala when I say that the cathedral is absolutely worth a visit: for its history as well as for all kinds of events, or jsut to stroll araound, light a candle or two, listen to music being rehearsed or performed. In summer, you can jsut stop outside and... More

This is a classic landmark of Uppsala and a must to visit if you visit this town. The biggest church of Scandinavia, it is viewed by many as the finest gothic building in the nordic countries. It is home to the archbishop of Sweden and inside there are beatiful glass windows paintings.
