  • We visited at a time when it was free entry. It is a beautiful peaceful place where I sat on a bench inside to take in the the atmosphere.  more »
  • The Storkyrkan is in the Center of Gamla Stan. It is very beautiful in the inside. Definately worth a visit  more »
  • 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.
