Very nice Cathedral!

The cathedral is huge and very nice inside. We didn't take the guided tour, but it's still worth a look inside to take a few pictures.

Especially recommended for Catholics - to experience how the Swedish Church is different from the Roman Catholic Church. And besides you can see some interesting art works. There are also some surprising faith-related souvenirs in the shop.

Largest church in Scandinavia. Many important people have crypts there. Pamphlets are available that describe all the nooks and crannies of the place. Great thing to do on a rainy day.

We wandered into this church with no expectations, just killing a little time. It was amazing! Beautiful example of a middle ages church that has been adapted to fit the many eras it has seen. King Vasa is buried here, a fact that isn't prominently noted. There have been additions of modern art in the church, too, so that it... More

The Uppsala Domkyrka is not merely worthy of your attention because it is Sweden's largest cathedral. There are a number of interesting tombs, including Carl Linnaus and Emmanuel Swedenborg. The astonishing surprise is the "Treasury", situated in the north-west tower. It costs 40SEK (Cdn$6) to get in, but you find yourself alone in a tower with a portion of Sweden's... More

Beautiful church inside and out. To get the full experience, try to get there to the 11 o'clock service, especially on Sunday.

This is a huge cathedral, you can't miss it in Uppsala. Entry seems to be free, it was for me anyway, as I couldn't see how I would pay. I planned to spend 20 minutes and ended up staying over an hour. Every few feet has something interesting to see, use Google Translate App to read some of the information... More

The church is really interesting and impressive. Very old, although still used and looks new with the brickwork. Stained glass windows very impressive.

This church, the largest in Scandanavia, dominates the Uppsala skyline and is the premiere sight to see in the city. walk around for an hour or two and take it in. Often there were be choirs practicing or someone playing the organ which adds to the effect. The vault is 40 kronor and is worthwhile if you like seeing clothing... More
