Uppsala Cathedral, Uppsala

4.6
See the tallest cathedral in Scandinavia and admire the twin Gothic spires of Uppsala Cathedral. Situated between Uppsala University and River Fyris, the cathedral stands nearly 122 m (400 ft) tall. You will recognize the 13th-century structure by its rose-hued exterior. Tour the site, originally designed by French architects in the French-Gothic style, and view its impressive features, including its treasury museum and chapels. Though the structure was damaged in a fire in the 18th century, the church today has been completed restored to its former glory.
