  • Stunning church. A must in Stockholm- top object is St George fighting the dragon sculpture. Very unique, medieval masterpiece. Church also contains an image of Stockholm from XV century.
  • A must see when you visit Stockholm! The cathedral is beautiful and you can find many important pieces of religious art. One of the most important one here is Saint George fighting a dragon!
