4.7
See the tallest cathedral in Scandinavia and admire the twin Gothic spires of Uppsala Domkyrka. Situated between Uppsala University and River Fyris, the cathedral stands nearly 122 m (400 ft) tall. You will recognize the 13th-century structure by its rose-hued exterior. Tour the site, originally designed by French architects in the French-Gothic style, and view its impressive features, including its treasury museum and chapels. Though the structure was damaged in a fire in the 18th century, the church today has been completed restored to its former glory.

  • Lovely place one of the most beautiful cathedrals in the world. Its goth style and massive size in combination with the river crossing the beautiful town is not something you can describe with words!
  • When I travel I always visit the greatest temple of the City or if it is posibpos the greatest temple of the country. The church has a great history since it United the people of Uppsala when it was made. Amazing architecture and the tallest church in Sweden. A must see if you visit the country.
