Having visited countless other cathedrals in the world, this cathedral is unique in its simplicity yet still instilling a sense of grandeur. Very elegant and tasteful and worth a quick drop by if possible

The church is small but beautiful. Love the vaulted ceiling. If you are in the old town, this should be included in your visit as a quick stop.

After a surprisingly interesting visit to the Royal Palace, we visited the Stockholm Cathedral. Although we were not able to tour the cathedral because of a musical performance, the J S Bach organ concert which we happened upon was wonderful. The interior of the cathedral...More

Walking up Storkyrkobrinken street we reached the Storkyrkan or the Great church, dedicated to Saint Nicholas. The interior in brick Gothic, contains a beautiful wooden St George and the dragon and several baroque altars.

This beautiful church is not far from the Royal Palace. It probably is worthwhile to go inside and see, as it is not that expensive. You can take a tour of the tower. Amazing place even if not as impressive as some other cathedrals around...More

Nor its location in the old town nor its architecture are really impressive - no comparison to the cathedral at Uppsala. Dedicated to St.Nicholas and often called 'Storkyrkan' (the big church) it has an exterior with a rather modest tower in baroque style, while its...More

This church was near our hotel in Gamla Stan and we almost didn’t visit but I am so glad we did. Absolutely stunning with amazing history. Take 30 minutes out of your trip and take it all in!

A beautiful church, very peaceful and I reckon a concert there would be amazing. Unfortunately I didn't have the opportunity. There is a charge of 20sek for an audio tour to run on your smart phone. Well worth the price.

Gamla Stan & Riddarholmen
Gamla Stan is Stockholm’s historic old town and home
to the Swedish Royal Palace. It’s the most central
island of Stockholm and accompanied by the small
island of Riddarholmen, mainly known for its famous
Riddarholm Church. Gamla Stan tends to be a bit
touristy at times but is definitely worth visiting:
take a stroll past the well-preserved buildings and
through the small (and also Sweden’s narrowest)

It’s really not very big - smaller than some standard churches - and a decent guide book coupled with Google will tell you the chief facts. I wouldn’t say a guide was needed.
