Storkyrkan - Review

This medieval architectural magnificence has been around for nearly as long as Stockholm city. It started out as a chapel for fishermen in the 12th century and underwent many expansions through the centuries. Today the Lutheran church has a Gothic interior and Baroque exterior, but far more significant than the architecture are the cathedral’s treasures:

  • Bernt Notke’s 15th century wooden sculpture of St George and the Dragon in commemoration of the 1471 Battle of Brunkeberg in which the Swedes defeated the Danes.
  • The Vadersolstavlan or Sun Dog Painting is famous for being a 17th century copy of a now lost 16th medieval painting depicting one of the earliest depictions of a peculiar kind of solar halo.
  • The late 17th century French Baroque pulpit with depictions of various events out of the Bible.
  • The wooden triptych Silver Altar. Check out the rose window behind it.

Trivia: T.R.H. Crown Princess Victoria and Prince Daniel were married here in 2010. Also, visit the popular attractions in the city by following Stockholm Itinerary 2 Days.

Storkyrkan, Stockholm Reviews

Google+
  • Its a big church with 500 years of history and british style. I would recommend you to spend some time here and explore the architecture. Its close to the city center and can be reached by walking around the place. Its also easily accesible through public transport from any part of the city.

  • A beautiful and amazing church. I highly recommend spending some time here and imagining being a visitor over 500 years ago, overwhelming!

  • "Big Church" worth a look. Swedish royals weddings. Underground route directly to royal palace

  • quite , spiritual space for a reflective meditation ! The George and the dragon statue is mesmerizing ! beautiful architecture next to the Royal Palace. Close by to other iconic attractions of Stockholm like the Nobel museum, the stortorget square and the Gothic German church Tyska Kyrkan, nestled around are cobbled streets , small boutique stores with beautifully arranged windows for shoppers, and innumerable bars and restaurants. Plan one complete evening at least based on your itinerary for a wonderful Stockholm experience.

  • The Most important church to visit in Stockholm. The interior is grand. And you will see art works and sculptures that will impress you. Especially the great sculpture of Saint George and the dragon by the Dutch sculptor Bernt Notke from 1471! Often there are concert for which you have to book a ticket in advance as they are popular.
