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.

I loved walking through the cathedrals in Old Town. This one especially took my breath away. Definitely worth a short visit.

A lovely cathedral in a mostly agnostic city. The wooden carved horse and rider (St George) are incredible. On some evenings they host a history night with costumed figures from history telling stories about their lives and interacting with visitors. We had just missed this...More

Such history in this beautiful cathedral. Just such a magical feeling inside. So very well maintained. A beautiful building for those that like to explore religious buildings and architecture. Intriguing symbolism.

Nice church, but compared to other cathedrals in Europe it´s rather small and not so impressive, kind of simple, actually

Not so noticeable outside but beautiful inside. Nice paraments and chandeliers. Tombs under the pavement. About 50Kr to enter. Worth a visit

A very nice change to see a Cathedral that is made of brick and has so much of it exposed. It makes the cathedral seem so much different from others. The cathedral is not so big that it takes a long time to tour, but...More

Worth a walk by just to the the outside of the church, and if you're into paying to see the inside, you can give them 40kr to see the rest. But the outside structure is worth a walk by if youre in gamla stan.

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)

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!

I don't know but the Cathedral has a website. You could probably contact them with your request.
