Owner description: 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.

“Very neat”
Reviewed December 3, 2012

Very neat. Beautiful cathedral. Great if you have a limited amount of time. It's just come and go. You don't have to pay, but they have a suggested entrance fee with a donation box at the front. It's nice to support them and they don't ask for much. :)

Well worth spending time here during a visit to Gamla Stan.

“Must see St. George & Dragon”
Reviewed November 17, 2012

Beautiful cathedral is a must-see in the old city--very Swedish in its more subtle grandeur. The huge St. George and Dragon sculpture is an amazing relic.

“Be proud to donate”
Reviewed November 5, 2012

To enter the cathedral, there is a sign and donation box to tell you that it cost 5 SEK per min to maintenance the cathedral so they ask for us to donate 40SEK to enter. Nobody there to stop you if you will sneak in. I donated without second thought since I understand and love to support religious related building. The cathedral is beautiful but there are much beautiful cathedral around the world that allow you to enter for free. So if you want to enter, please pay as donation not entrance fees. Then you will be happy same as me.

“See for george and the dragon”
Reviewed October 31, 2012 via mobile

A magnificent cathedral, but the main attaraction is the scupture of saint george and the dragon. Well worth a visit and it opens at 9 before the other museums. Good to visit if you are early rises like us.
