Kiruna Kyrka, Kiruna

Must see · Church · Tourist Spot
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.

  • There's a reason it was voted the most beautiful building in Sweden at one point. A must stop and see if you are traveling to Kiruna!  more »
  • Built out of wood in it's entirety i feel it's worth visiting. I have never seen anything similar before, even the organ inside is amazing!  more »
