I'm not a fan of city cathedrals. They tend to be too grandiose and ornate, but Stockholm Cathedral is an exception.
This unique building has a warmth and grandeur all its own. The extensive use of red brick gives it warmth, and the way this is taken up into the ceiling arches is spectacular. The royal boxes are stunning but its the humbler aspects of this place which impress - like the bare feet of the Virgin, casually posed, on a plinth to the right of the altar, or the huge orb candle holder, representing the world, with a small ship suspended nearby. The big attraction is the statue of Saint George subduing the Dragon, but again it is the small detail, the beautifully carved hair of the rescued girl, which fascinates and stays in the memory.
This has to be one of the most beautiful churches in the world.

This church right by the Royal Palace is chock full of history. It is a bit severe but leaves a lasting impression.

What is absolutely impressive about this church is the wood statue of “Saint George and the Dragon.” The 1489 sculpture is actually jaw-dropping beautiful. The statue is large, dramatic and colorful. Seeing this statue should not be missed in your visit to Gamla stan.

Behind the statue is a very large bell. I regret not having my wife stand in front of the bell to show how large it is in a photo.

Saint Nicolas is impressive. The large round stain-glass window by the alter is magnificent. So is the 16th century copy of a print of Stockholm.

This church is located next to the Royal Palace. It was once Roman Catholic, now Lutheran. This Brick Gothic Church has been around since the 13th century. For ages, it served as a place for royal weddings, royal funerals and coronations. It is the oldest church in Gamla stan.

Many people have their fill of old churches but I certainly don't. The Stockholm Cathedral has been around since the 1300's. It hosts the opening of the National Assembly of Sweden, coronations, royal weddings and it is a working church, not just a pretty place. It can be overwhelming to visit such a large church especially when a Baptism was in progress. Taking our time allowed us to see many fine details. The statue of St George Slaying the Dragon was fascinating. The silver altar, the pulpit, the rose window above the altar all merit attention.
