This beautiful church is not far from the Royal Palace. It probably is worthwhile to go inside and see, as it is not that expensive. You can take a tour of the tower. Amazing place even if not as impressive as some other cathedrals around...More

Nor its location in the old town nor its architecture are really impressive - no comparison to the cathedral at Uppsala. Dedicated to St.Nicholas and often called 'Storkyrkan' (the big church) it has an exterior with a rather modest tower in baroque style, while its...More

This church was near our hotel in Gamla Stan and we almost didn’t visit but I am so glad we did. Absolutely stunning with amazing history. Take 30 minutes out of your trip and take it all in!

A beautiful church, very peaceful and I reckon a concert there would be amazing. Unfortunately I didn't have the opportunity. There is a charge of 20sek for an audio tour to run on your smart phone. Well worth the price.

Stockholm Cathedral is a church located at 1 Traangsund in Gamla Stan. Lovely inside. 60 SEK each to go in.

The interior of Stockholm cathedral is really quite beautiful, and is much more impressive than it appears from the outside. The gothic brick arches really stand out against the white plaster and the organ is impressive.

The Stockholm Cathedral is a beautiful church near the Royal Palace. I wouldn't go out of your way to go there, but if you are in the area it is worth stopping by. They also do tours of the tower.

This is a great church to visit if you have 30-40min extra time in Gamla Stan. The art and statues are gorgeous and it’s brick interior makes it a bit different than a typical European church.

Gamla Stan & Riddarholmen
Gamla Stan is Stockholm’s historic old town and home
to the Swedish Royal Palace. It’s the most central
island of Stockholm and accompanied by the small
island of Riddarholmen, mainly known for its famous
Riddarholm Church. Gamla Stan tends to be a bit
touristy at times but is definitely worth visiting:
take a stroll past the well-preserved buildings and
through the small (and also Sweden’s narrowest)

It’s really not very big - smaller than some standard churches - and a decent guide book coupled with Google will tell you the chief facts. I wouldn’t say a guide was needed.

The visitor centers in Uppsala and Stockholm are incredibly helpful. Check out the schedules posted throughout both cities. The train stations are a great place to find good venues. Lots of beautiful music everywhere!

Depends of which harbour you will enter. Hopfuly you are entering the city harbour at Stadsgårds kajen. Then all but Drottningholm is just in the nabourhood. Drottningholm you should skip because getting there and back would set you short on two hours just traveling. If however you arrive at frihamnen you have to take bus/subway in to gamla stan from were you could explore the sights you want, all except for Drottningholm

1. The cathedral is IN the Old Town, right next to the Royal Palace. City Hall is a 15 min walk from the Royal Palace. 2. I think you could do all three in a day. The Vasa is clearly the shining star in this trio, how much time you spend in the Nordic museum depends completely on how good the current exhibition is and how interested you are in design and fashion. I spent about an hour the last time I was there.
