Located on the islet of the same name, just off Gamla Stan, this elegant and soaring church is the burial location of Swedish royalty. Some parts of the original 13th century structure still remain. It is also the city’s only remaining preserved medieval monastery. The main highlight is the marble sarcophagus of Gustav II Adolf. It does not function as a church any longer, though. Sometimes concerts are held here. The exterior exhibits grandeur and looks awe inspiring. Some of the most popular graves are those of Gustav II Adolf, Karl XII, Gustav V and their consorts.

Super interesting if you have even a little bit of interest in Swedish history, or architecture. With parts of the structure dating back to the 1200s, just being near something that old was fascinating. Minus a star for the lack of guides; though the printed material was informative enough about the personages in the various chapels and crypts, I would have appreciated a spoken descriptive tour much more. Other reviews indicate they exist, but there were none today.
We stumbled upon this church while walking around. We only knew we wanted to go in not knowing we were stumbling into a mausoleum for royals. I'm still in awe by the building and history we experienced. From the architecture to the coat of arms, expect to be amazed. It was the best $5 we have spent so far.
Very beautiful. But! The streets impact the view negatively and so does the nearby construction works. The best point of view is across two roads. from there you can see the two peaks align perfectly. very aesthetically pleasing. However, unfortunately it IS indeed across two roads... Mind the to of tourists obviously. (And yes, I am a tourist myself, ironically)
Interesting and valuable place. The church is packed with kings', queens' and princes's sarcophagus. Each of them is literally a peace of art, made and decorated of marble, gold and silver. Totally recommended.
Beautiful church with impressive architecture, picturesque scenery from many spots around the canals.
