Uppsala Domkyrka is the largest Cathedral in Scandinavia. Building started in the thirteenth century and was completed in the fifteenth. It was built around a shrine to Saint Erik, the patron saint of Sweden and a twelfth century King and contains significant medieval carvings and wall paintings as well as rune stones.
