Owner description: Dating back to the 13th century, this church has a distinct character and history. It is the oldest in the Old Town and is home to several relics as well as an impressive statue of Saint George fighting the Dragon. Storkyrkan can pique almost anyone's curiosity, not just the history buff's.

This was one of the best things I saw in Stockholm, the Storkykran, which is not Catholic! It takes half an hour so you could early morning- they give weekly mass (in Swedish!)

“Free concerts on Sundays”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2013

The Cathedral is located in Gamla Stan, the old city, between the Royal Palace and the main square outside the Nobel Museum. I was wandering around this area and saw a notice saying that there would be a free organ recital that Sunday afternoon at 3pm. I returned at that time and enjoyed a wonderful recital of the huge church organ , and a much smaller portable organ, like you may have in a small country church. I understand they have these free Sunday afternoon recitals throughout the summer. They are different each week.

“You must include this”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 25, 2013

Don't be put off by the outside of the cathedral - it's very plain. Inside is totally different. There's so much to see - a huge sculpture of George and the dragon, a beautifully carved pulpit, the stained glass windows and much more.

“Beautiful”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 19, 2013

We were very impressed with our visit to the cathedral. There is a small admission charge but it is well worth the price. This is a historic treasure in Stockholm and should not be missed.
