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.

Cathedral is located just next to the Royal Palace, and much more beautifu indoors than what you would expect. It does cost, but so little it is worth the pay.

Stockholm Cathedral is located close to the Royal Palace in the Old Town. It has quite a short stumpy clock tower, so don't head straight for the tallest spire in town, that belongs to the German church. The building itself is a bit plain. As compensation there are some very elaborate artworks and sculptures inside. Most notably the wooden George and Dragon. This sculpture is huge, embellished with jewels and a mass of antlers. The 40 Sek / 5 Euro entrance fee is a bit steep. If you come here midday you may stumble upon one of the many concerts held here. Usually a simple affair, a piano and a solo singer.
The current King of Sweden was crowned here in 1973.

The church offers a free tour around at noon and this is the best way to enjoy the place. The church is filled with impressive work of arts ranging from the paintings to the statues. The tour will also take you to the tower balcony which will give you an amazing view of the city. This is a Lutherans cathedral and is well impressive from each corner. Wish I would had the opportunity to catch a service at the place as well.

An amazing cathedral right in the centre of Stockholm. The ticket it's not for free but I advise you to spend this money. So swedish style, a "must" of any tour of Stockholm!

It is majestic and yet serene and you can go there and listen to concerts during lunch hours sometime just to enjoy the music for a while.
