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.

  • I visited the Storkyrka for one of the many concerts held there and was impressed by the inner Gothic style which strikes a contrast with the Baroque outside. The metal statue of St. George and the Dragon is an amazing work of art.

  • Nice church. It is warm in the winter and nice to look around

  • The best way to visit the cathedral is to join a concert in the evening. There is an event almost every evening in August. Come at 6:30 pm, get the ticket (60 SEK, same price as the entrance ticket) and you will have 30 minutes to look around before the concert starts. I went to an organ concert, and it was great.

  • If you enjoy walking down the street, you play all day long. Be quiet and energetic.

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