  Lund Cathedral

No, it cannot be compared to Aachen, York or St Pete's but it is nevertheless one of the most visited buildings in Sweden and said to be the foremost piece of roman architecture in Scandinavia. Most people come to see the astronomical clock play twice a day (12.00/13.00 or 15.00) or to see Finn, the giant, a legend associated with Lund. The oldest part of the cathedral is the crypt from the 1080s (see travelogue) whilst the twin towers are only from the 19th century. Through the Historical Museum, you have access to the Cathedral museum where you can learn more about it.
