Experience a piece of Stockholm's history through the stunning design, interior, and sculptures of Storkyrkan, an example of Swedish Brick Gothic architecture from the Middle Ages. The oldest church in the old town, it was built in 1279 by the city's founder, Birger Jarl, and houses a number of famous items, such as the 15th-century St. George and the Dragon sculpture and the 16th-century Vädersoltavlan. Situated right next to the royal palace, this site is easy to find. To visit Storkyrkan and other attractions in Stockholm, use our Stockholm vacation builder.
Pay to enter a church even if you want to pray but look like a tourist. Does not merit the 60SEK ticket and is a highly hyped one considering i have visited many baroque churches with much better quality and sculpture throughout Europe and free. The sculpture saving the princess from the dragon has historical significance and is something to go inside for but the cost being extracted for this is epic. Would not visit again.
This is a beautiful and very historic old Cathedral located in the old area of Stockholm called gambler stand. The interior of the cathedral is nice, but it’s most known for the statue of Saint George slaying the dragon. It is worth a visit if you visit Stockholm.
