A medieval foundation with a baroque exterior, this grand church is in many ways analagous to Stockholm itself: it's often overlooked, but there's lots of neat stuff inside. The tower of the church, reaching a height of 66 meters (or 216 feet) dates from the middle of the 18th century - which is exactly when so much of Stockholm developed its particular charm. On a bright winter's day, the tower brilliantly shines over Stortorget.
In Gamla Stan, you'll find the oldest church of Stockholm, the Storkyrkan. Inside you can see the wooden carving of George and the Dragon. Also inside, you'll find Stockholm's oldest painting.
... the crowning church of the swedish kings ... with a very impressive sculpture of St. Georg slaying the dragon. It is partly made of elk antlers (!)... the dragon looks awesome.
The cathedral of Stockholm is the oldest church in the city and it houses the world famous sculpture of St George and the Dragon.
The Storkyrkan is in the old town near the palace. The church is beautiful inside with historic carvings of St. George, etc.
