The Linköping Cathedral is visible from very long distance as it rises 107 m.
The cathedral is the most expensive of the Swedish churches from medevial time and was an evidence of the richness and power of the bishop in Linköping (he had dominion over Östergötland, Gotland, Öland and greater part of Småland).
The work was started with German builders who worked in roman style. Later came men from England which gave the Early English style that can bee seen in the west part.

Renovation work has being done outside as well as inside the church. As you can see it is hard to get sight of the church when coming closer.

State of the nave (November 2003), before the renovation work was completed.
