Linnaeus Tomb one of the holy sites of biology.

This impressive church is well worth a visit both for its brick architecture and because it contains the tomb of Carl Linnaeus the father of taxonomy.

We happened in Uppsala during Easter Monday, which was fairly warm with lots of people out strolling. We ended up attending the 3 pm Easter Monday service - in English - which was the perfect setting to mark the occasion in this beautiful surroundings. Lovely to hear the organ ringing throughout the Domkyrka.

The Uppsala Cathedral is stunning and imposing and definitely a sight you shouldn't miss whilst in Uppsala. I was only sorry for the fact that it seemed to be closed on Saturday around 6.30, a time in which most of the churches are still open or have a service going on. The entrance isn't marked in any special way, side... More

The Domkyrka is a stunningly beautiful building. The style is of the cathedral is gothic, I think. It is very understated with perfect proportions. The side chapels feature many splendid and interesting tapestries and wall hangings. Since the cathedral began life as Church of Rome and was converted to State Lutheran it is an interesting mix of religion and history.... More

The impressing Uppsala Cathedral is a national shrine. The breathtaking height, all the historical funerary monuments, the large organs (the latest is an Ruffatti organ, built 2008), the embellishments and not at least the the Treasury, home to one of Europe’s finest collections of mediaeval church fabrics. Worth not only a quick stop, but a thorough visit.

Although this cathedral is not as opulent as the churches of Rome, it is quite beautiful. Nice architecture with soaring ceilings and there are plenty of historically important people buried there. A nice, peaceful place to look around or just to sit and rest for a while.

A monument which preserves the catholic architecture with modern protestant tradition... Quiet place with plenty of architectural aspects..Spend atleast an hour to enjoy the best of it..It has a splendid collection of bibles in most of the world languages!
