Take a tour of Uppsala Cathedral in Uppsala, Sweden -- part of the World's Greatest Attractions travel video series by GeoBeats.

Uppsala, Sweden holds the honor of being the home of the largest cathedral in all of Scandinavia.

It was 1287 when the first parts of the cathedral were constructed, though the structure was not finished until much later.

The Uppsala Cathedral was originally a Catholic church, but became Lutheran with the coming of the Protestant Reformation.

At its tallest, the prominent towers that pierce the sky above the church reach a height of nearly four hundred feet.

The cathedral's beautiful red brick walls and black roofs set it apart from many other medieval religious structures.

Within these massive walls are a museum, the tombs of many of Sweden's most important citizens, and numerous exquisite paintings and murals.
