Understated compared to other cathedrals. Alas, a major section was undergoing serious renovations and was not accessible during the time of our visit.

The property is really impressive dimensions. From the outside, very charming, it may seem a classic Gothic cathedral, right in line with the standards of northern Europe and, as well as you enter, this impression is confirmed by the wide aisles and dark atmosphere. But the gem not to be missed is the altar; behind it, in fact, stands a... More

Beautiful, breathtaking - full of relics, artifacts, works of art, and just - amazing... Make sure to visit the treasury (NB Wheelchair-inaccessible :( ), which closes at 4pm to see the Vasa crowns, textiles from the middle ages, and a beautiful Limoges enamel box.

This place is full of history. It is the oldest church in Sweden. There are graves of important people in there which is very interesting.

Sure its big, and a landmark for Uppsala, but it does look like all other churches around. If I were you I would rather go to 7/11 at the trainstation and buy five cinnamon buns for 49 kr.

A somewhat rugged version of your basic cathedral. If you are from scandinavia its worth the visit, if for nothing else, just from a historical viewpoint. One can only wonder what the poor clergymen from the outreaches of kingdom must have thought of its majesty a century after it was built. The neon light banner inside the church was tasteless.

This cathedral was equal amounts of beautiful, powerful, charming and romantic. I am not religious but I like religious structures. This one was one of the most memorable and moving.
