Best in Sweden

The Cathedral in Uppsala is the most impressive in Sweden (that I have seen). Definitely not as good as others in Europe(but what is very ls?) but worth a visit.

Impressive from outside and more from inside. A treasure of history. Almost a thousand years old. The paintings and decorations have survived, because the protestants have covered them with big layers of white paint, when converting the biggest church in Scandinavia into a protestant church from 1536

A magnificent and impressive structure inside and out. Visible from all over Uppsala. Not as breathtakingly beautiful as other cathedral in Europe, but definitely worth seeing.

This church is definitely worth seeing, not least because the great king Gustaf Vasa was buried here. Also the reliquary of St. Eric of Sweden is here. Although a protestant church, it is finely decorated and shows respect for its Catholic roots. There is even something for the kids.

The cathedral (Domkyrka) in Uppsala is easily the highlight of the small town and unlike the cathedral in Stockholm (which is smaller), it is free to the public. Quite impressive, it contains many stunning works of art, religious relics, and artifacts associated with the Church of Sweden and the Christianization of Sweden. The interior is quite stunning too, so it's... More

While Uppsala thrives on its University culture, I found the Domkyrka to be the heart that provides the circulation. I had gone on a Saturday, and after visiting the magnificent church interiors which was initially deserted, found students congregating outside for various activities, There was and evangelist group who drew us in to join into songs. Then we saw small... More

I recently sang in a concert in Uppsala Cathedral and it was a great experience. The Cathedral is beautiful with lovely painted pillars and ceiling. The acoustic was excellent and our audience very appreciative. I would urge visitors to go when there's some music on to truly experience the beauty of this place.

This beautiful cathedral was built in the middle ages and towers over the city of Uppsala, a clear demonstration of the power of the church. The church is beautiful in itself, and also contains the graves of several important Swedish kings and queens. It also has a museum (with an entrance fee) which has some medieval clothing, treasures of the... More

Brutally restored in the 19th century under Helgo Zetterwall, not very interesting. An outside glance is sufficient.
