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.
