Trångsund 1

The 700 year old Stockholm Cathedral, Storkyrkan, was the first church built in the city and was originally used for royal wedding and coronations. The elaborate interior of the building is decorated with paintings and the royal-box pews where designed by Nicodemus Tessin the Younger. One of the most renowned features in the building is the statue of St. George and the Dragon, which was sculpted by the Berndt Notke. The painting of the Last Judgement and the seven-branched candle stick add to the beauty and serenity of the building.

The Royal Palace and Stockholm Library are located near this church.
