The church ruins and graveyard runes are interesting to see, and St. Mary's (medieval) Church is right nearby. Sigtuna itself is a picturesque little village with nice coffee shops and gift shops.

Beautiful ruins in this really picturesque jewel of a village. With its old houses, small cafes and little shops, it makes for a nice day trip from Stockholm (by train and bus, or by boat during the Summer).

Unfortunately this interesting old church is no longer available for visiting as the structure is recently considered to be unsound. Therefore you can only view it from outside a chain link fence.

The ruins were utterly sublime, and we came to Sigtuna by bus just to see them. We were happy to find ourselves in a lovely, albeit tiny, little town. But the ruins look more beautiful in person, even, and have such an atmosphere to them...More

Well preserved ruins of a church (probably one of the oldest in Sweden) dating back to the first half of the 12th century. Unfortunately, for safety reasons, the place is fenced off, but it is worth a visit if you are in the area (especially...More
