Gothenburg Cathedral is the seat of the bishop of the diocese of Gothenburg in the Church of Sweden. The present cathedral is the third to be built on the same ground. It was built in 1815 and the style is Classical. The first one was built in 1633 and it was named Gustavi church after King Gustav II Adolf. This church was destroyed in 1721 and the second one in 1802. The interior has various styles, mainly classical and Empire style.

Immaculate inside with an even more impressive exterior, Gustavi Cathedral is certainly one of the more stunning churches in Göteborg. It’s a must visit when in the city centre.

The Cathedral was not open when I visited, but it was a sunny, nice day and I enjoyed sitting in the courtyard-like area situated in the front. It is really a beautiful building and the plants in the courtyard area are well maintained and nice to sit around.

This is a lovely peaceful place to stop awhile. It is fairly plain and white inside with golden decorations.
