The Cathedral of Stockholm, called Storkyrkan, was consecrated in 1306. All the royal weddings and coronations take place here, and over 2,000 people are buried under the church. The 15th century statue of St. George and the Dragon is carved from oak and elk horn. Many Stockholm residents believe this statue symbolizes Sweden's need to struggle against evil.
Also of interest in the church are the royal pews dating back to the 17th century and the huge black and silver altapiece. Since I love maps of all types, my favorite piece in the cathdral was the large mural map depicting 1535 Stockholm. The mural is a 1630 copy of the 1535 original.
