Admire the creative approach to architecture at Kiruna Kyrka, one of the finest examples of Swedish innovation. Completed in 1912, the unusual-looking church is shaped to resemble a traditional Sami tent. The church is filled with masterpieces of art and design, from the gilded statues on the roof to Prince Eugen's elaborate altarpiece, and yet radiates a warm and comfortable atmosphere. Right next to the church is its bell tower, another gem of ecclesiastical architecture. No fee is required to enter the church; check online for a schedule of services and special events, such as concerts. Find out how to plan Kiruna trip without stress by asking Inspirock to help create an itinerary.
Kiruna Kyrka Reviews
Looks like it was built last week. Fantastic architecture, it's a shame we can't build like this now Peaceful and very elegant more »
Gorgeous church. Not sure whether Catholic or Protestant. Beautiful woodwork. Was told that it will be moved when Kiruna is relocated. So glad they are preserving it. Really stunning. more »
