  • Perhaps the high point is the image of Saint George, really beautiful! but the altar is impressionamento, all dark wood and silver, a work rich! Look calmly every detail. So beautiful, you can't compare!

  • Amazing mixture of Majesty and sobriety, Gothic and baroque, the Cathedral of St. Nicholas in Stockholm is on the island of Gamla Stan, in the immediate vicinity of the royal palace. Admission is charged (40 SEK/person: about 4 euros) but the price is justified by the use of money collected both the maintenance and preventive and curative of the building conservation. A brochure published in French language allows you to guide you inside the premises. Visit this unusual Lutheran Church is organized primarily around the splendid works of art not to be missed: the impressive sculptural whole St George and the dragon, the gigantic 7 candelabra branches bronze, the painting of the last judgment, the silver and ebony altarpiece, the Royal seats, the exuberant Chair (which overlooks the tombstone of the Swedish reformer Olaus Petri), the Parhelion , the organ and, to a lesser extent, the newest light Globe. The volume of light and excellent acoustic (feel free if you have the opportunity to attend a concert or a repetition) between the pillars of red brick of this shrine to the special atmosphere, place of coronations and Royal Weddings to the House of Sweden. For the outside view, think about the tour (the bedside overlooks a very airy place while the façade is located in an alley that is relatively narrow and usually crowded with tourists). Don't miss this tour!

  • Vasa Museum necessarily has to go. The municipal Palace is beautiful but watch the sunset Hill against the municipal Palace is not necessarily has to be done. Canal tour is beautiful. Maybe walk in Stockholm, is already available for that city.
