Uppala cathedral is in the middle of town. It is built in the 15th century in gothic style. Summertime there is the option of guided shows both in english and swedish (small fee). Parking is very limited, but there are multi-storey car parks within 5-6 blocks. Cameras and walking shoes recommended. The visit requires 1-2 hours.

It's a great piece of architecture and murals for explorers. Good spot to capture some shots of the high sky scrapper and quite calm surrounding ambience

It was a nice walk through town and uphill hike on the edge of the Uppsala University campus but once there indeed it was another large European cathedral. Once Catholic, now a place of worship for the church of Sweden. A quick visit on an afternoon walk about.

This cathedral is really something to see in Uppsala - not only that is huge and therefore breathtaking, but also the inside of it is worth checking out. There are some magnificent tombs, the walls are also the work of art, with the motives of swedish history, etc. And next to it a cathedral caffe to relax and enjoy some... More

This church is a true historic wonder. Doesn't matter if you're religious or not - this place is just stunning. You will find several tombs that are located both in the cathedral as well as under the floor. As always the churches in Sweden are open to everyone and even though Swedes are not very "religious" the churches have played... More

Very beautiful and huge Cathedral. I was there when it was spring and on that evening the have a summer concert of the church choir. And it was great, the musician and little singers were fabulous! Also very nice decoration on the wall and ceiling but the most attractive things to see is the stained glass!

Even though I work next to this building, I still like to visit Uppsala Domkyrka from time to time (for concerts and sometimes simply to take in the atmosphere). It is a must see for every tourist, and I always bring visiting friends here!

I didn't experience this as overly spiritual. One, it's poorly lit. And it doesn't help that the walls and side rooms are dark too. Two, there are many tombstones inside, sitting above ground. There is also this freaky mannequin of a woman up front, and I"m quite certain she stares at you as you walk past. Shiver. Many carvings are... More
