  • This is a very beautiful 1300s gothic cathedral in Gamla Stan. The tower was covered for renovations but inside was such a treat. You have to pay to get in but if you're interested in architecture...

  • I was blown away by the interior of Storkyrkan. It isn't the largest cathedral, but it is stunning, and packed with fascinating artefacts. Very unique and an absolute must-visit for anyone in Gamla...

  • Lovely place for a wonder, peace and beauty. You can really feel the old, historical times close to you. The art history in the church is very interesting indeed, there is everything from skulls carved in stone to fine art paintings and scupltures. Those old graves, next time im planning to learn more about them. Centraly located in the old town. A small access fee. Worth every penny.
  • Good place from point of view of history, religion, quiet ... go there and look for something, it is hiding in your heart, but you can find it there... 😉
