Storkyrkan Overview

The mediaeval cathedral of Stcokholm was built in 1279 and is known for the variety of services and concerts that happen here. This cathedral takes price in hosting the wedding ceremonies of Princess Victoria and Prince Daniel- the royal couple of Denmark. 

Alternatively known as Storkyrkan, this cathedral is located next to Stockholm’s Royal Castle in the city’s old town and is more than 750 years old. The cathedral was originally Roman Catholic, but it was later converted to Lutheran during the Reformation Age. It was originally dedicated to St Nicholas of Myra and was built in Gothic style in the 13th century. As time went by the cathedral was further developed and its interiors were made to look more elaborate and grand.

The most impressive piece of architecture in the cathedral was that of a wooden structure that depicts the legend of Saint George and the dragon. Today, the cathedral continues to be an iconic landmark in the city of Stockholm that attracts tourists and locals alike. Explore the picturesque landscapes and rich history with our Sweden tour packages.
