Kiruna Kyrka, Kiruna

4.4
#1 of 11 in Historic Sites in Norrbotten County
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.

  • 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 »
