Exploring Uppsala Cathedral
At 118.7 metres tall, Uppsala Cathedral is the tallest church in Scandinavia. It towers above the skyline of Uppsala making it, unsurprisingly, one of its most famous sights. Originally built as a Roman Catholic church, Uppsala Cathedral is now under the control of the Lutheran Church of Sweden and serves as the seat of the Archbishop of Uppsala.
Work on the cathedral began in 1287. It took more than a century to complete and was finally consecrated in 1435. Like Uppsala Castle, Uppsala Cathedral sustained serious damage during the city fire of 1702, being restored in the early 20th century. The structure is made from local brick, giving it a distinctive red colour that stands out in winter and glows in the summer sun. Today, visitors can enjoy free admission to Uppsala Cathedral, but must pay to enter its museum.
