Uppsala Cathedral

Scandinavias largest cathedral.
Uppsala Cathedral was built almost 750 years ago, around 1270. St Erik’s reliquary, the cathedral’s major artefact, was moved here from the former cathedral in Old Uppsala as early as 1273.

Several famous scientists are also buried here alongside royal personages and other great men. Carl Linnaeus and Nils Rosén von Rosenstein are two of them. In 1931 Archbishop and Nobel Peace Prize Laureate Nathan Söderblom was buried in the cathedral.

Uppsala Cathedral is and has been a place for both daily services, church festivals and synods. All of Sweden’s archbishops and the priests and deacons of Uppsala diocese are ordained here. The kings and queens of Sweden were crowned in Uppsala Cathedral until 1719.

Every year some half a million people come to Uppsala Cathedral for services, concerts and solitude or as tourists.
