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.

A statue with an interesting hint at history and there are many very old burials, some with inscriptions completely worn out. Makes for a degree of atmosphere. And it's interesting to see what was a Catholic Church that's now Lutheran.

This was one of the best things I saw in Stockholm, the Storkykran, which is not Catholic! It takes half an hour so you could early morning- they give weekly mass (in Swedish!)

The Cathedral is located in Gamla Stan, the old city, between the Royal Palace and the main square outside the Nobel Museum. I was wandering around this area and saw a notice saying that there would be a free organ recital that Sunday afternoon at 3pm. I returned at that time and enjoyed a wonderful recital of the huge church organ , and a much smaller portable organ, like you may have in a small country church. I understand they have these free Sunday afternoon recitals throughout the summer. They are different each week.

Don't be put off by the outside of the cathedral - it's very plain. Inside is totally different. There's so much to see - a huge sculpture of George and the dragon, a beautifully carved pulpit, the stained glass windows and much more.

We were very impressed with our visit to the cathedral. There is a small admission charge but it is well worth the price. This is a historic treasure in Stockholm and should not be missed.
