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.

The admission is free and there is a lot to see. Many posters to read and to explore. The cathedral is very beautiful inside, really worth the visit.

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.

Don't miss this wonderful building that dominates the City skyline. Much of the history of Sweden is recorded within its walls. A stunning, sparse interior.

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.
