By backpackguru in Entertainment
The Linkoping Cathedral is an impressive site that can be seen from far away. It's well worth a visit. Constructed of the church began in 1230, but there had been a stone church on this sight hundred of years earlier. The design continued into 1520, and only then was the church declared complete. The church as continued to grow though. It has an interesting atmosphere with many gothic creatures. It's very conveniently located in the center of the city, so you can easily visit it while you're visiting other sites.
