Cathedral, Uppsala: 28 reviews and 49 photos
This cathedral in Gothic style is one of the oldest in Sweden, if not the oldest, and one of the biggest churches in the Nordic countries with its 2 118.7 meters long towers - as high as the building itself is long. Storan, the church bell hanging in the cathedral, is Sweden's biggest church bell.
Uppsala Domkyrkan used to be the coronation place for the kings and queens of Sweden until the ceremonies started taking place in Stockholm.
Skattkammaren, or the Treasure Chamber, is the Cathedral museum on the northern tower and has a collection of medieval textiles.
Practical info: open daily 8am-6pm, free admission to the church but it costs 30SEK to enter the Treasure Chamber (Skattkammaren). There's free guided tours every Sunday at 12:30 or when the service is over but if you want to book your own guided tour for a fee. Dress appropriately.
Directions: Walking distance from Stora Torget.
