Uppsala Cathedral

Uppsala cathedral is the biggest one in Scandinavia but far from the most beautiful. The exterior is maybe not the nicest but the interior is pretty nice or infact very nice

They started building it in the 13th century and it was finished in the early 15th century. It 119 meter high and 118 meters long. Its 29 meters from the ground to the ceiling.

Why did they decide to "renovate" the building like that?
