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.

We were lucky because a children's choir was rehearsing while we were visited. With the organ playing and the kids singing, it made for a very uplifting experience. Besides, the church is very spacious, well maintained and has beautiful acoustics.

Almost every part of the building from the floors(made of buried nobles of the elite) the art on the walls, the special prayer and memorial rooms. the major renovations of the church, the statues in and outside the building was rich...
