A very interesting place, it is the only preserved medieval monastery church in Stockholm. Almost all kings of Sweden (except of Queen Christina) are burried here since 1632. It is opened to public in summer and autumn and there are concerts during the whole year.

This was our first sight off the subway by Gamla Stan. The kids enjoyed visiting all the tombs for the royals and the magestic art and displays. Beautiful church!

Interesting church from outside with a beautiful spire and interesting inside, with good information sheets provided. There are also concerts in the building that are free of charge if you have the entrance ticket to the church.

Stopped by for a few minutes to get shelter from the heavy rain. Nothing impressive about this church, really. Few to none decorative elements, this is the burial place of the Swedish monarchs.

Gamla Stan & Riddarholmen
Gamla Stan is Stockholm’s historic old town and home
to the Swedish Royal Palace. It’s the most central
island of Stockholm and accompanied by the small
island of Riddarholmen, mainly known for its famous
Riddarholm Church. Gamla Stan tends to be a bit
touristy at times but is definitely worth visiting:
take a stroll past the well-preserved buildings and
through the small (and also Sweden’s narrowest)

I think they may only be open during the summer season. Best to check their website for hours for accuracy.
