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 lovely

I would not have paid to go in but a donation is asked for (best to use the Stockholm pass for free entry to so many attractions). The inside is really lovely and worth visiting

Near to the Royal palace is Storkyrkan, it is quite understated from the outside but spare a few minutes and head inside. It is spacious, grand display and colours and a rather surprise design of the alter.

Does not have the ornate grandeur of many other such cathedrals but is worth visiting even just to see the magnificent statue of St George killing the dragon.

Beautiful cathedral in the Old Town of Stockholm. To sit down for a few minutes and let the impressions work on you is just the right thing after a lot of walking. What I liked best was the sculpture of St George and the dragon which is beautifully crafted.

Its a nice church to look around if you are interested. But not so much outstanding. The only thing I found extra interesting to look at was the big statue of st Göran and the drace, all made in oak. Amazing handcraft!

The Cathedral it self is quite nice, however having to pay to go and see St George fighting the Dragon felt quite disappointing.

I'm surprised this is not higher on the list of places to visit in Stockholm. The cathedral dominates nearly every view in Stockholm so no trip is complete without a visit. We visited Notre Dame on the same trip and personally, I think this cathedral is just as lovely.

Staying in Gamla Stan & Riddarholmen

Neighbourhood Profile
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) alleys, which will make you feel like you’ve travelled back in time. This neighborhood offers a great combination of historical buildings and traditional Swedish restaurants.
