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.

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.

We arrived shortly before closing time, so we unfortunately did not get to stay as long as we might have liked. From what we had the time to see, it is definitely worth a stop to admire all the ornate decorations and furniture throughout. Also a good quiet place to rest up after a lot of walking.

This church is located right in Old Town and right off of the main square. When you walk inside, it didn't feel like a typical Cathedral. It was mainly brick and had some amazing statues toward the alter. Definitely worth a 15-20 min visit.

This cathedral is free to enter with the Stockholm Card or free with a small donation upon entering. Outside it seems simple, but inside it is breathtaking. There is an amazing statue of St. George and the Dragon made out of wood that is centuries old, with a placard of the story of St. George. In addition, it is the... More

Connected to the history of Stockholm, and home to some of the important event of the Swedish royal family, the Storkyrkan cathedral in Gamla Stan is a mandatory stop in every touristic tour of Stockholm. This 13th century brick Gothic church includes some interesting paintings and statues (such as the 15th century wooden St. George fighting the dragon statue), and... More

Not terribly impressive from the outside but amazing on the inside. All of the plaster has been removed to reveal the beauty of the original brick columns & walls. Great statue of St George & the Dragon ( a bronze replica is also out in the streets of Gamla Stan) lets you understand that not only the English thought this... More

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.
