Uppsala Domkyrka (Uppsala Cathedral)
Uppsala Domkyrka (Uppsala Cathedral) Review
The 390-foot twin towers of Uppsala Domkyrka —whose height equals the length of the nave—dominate the city skyline. Work on the cathedral began in the early 13th century; it was consecrated in 1435 and restored between 1885 and 1893. Still the seat of Sweden's archbishop, the cathedral is also the site of the tomb of Gustav Vasa, the king who established Sweden's independence in the 16th century. Inside is a silver casket containing the relics of St. Erik, who died in 1160.
