    Friendly, warm, luminous, unpretentious place. You can sit, have a cup of coffee. In a self-service shop to buy trinkets. In a very comfortable chair to read magazines and books. Of course you can pray. All in a warm błękitach.

    This church is 24 / 7, available to all denominations available. Inside is a small cafe. From there, there are still about 15 minutes walk to cemetery.

    Interesting and worth seeing. Inside, cookies and coffee are served. Beautiful views of the town of Longyearbyen.

    The world's northern most church.

    If you came to one of the northernmost towns in the world, you should definitely go to this church. In fact it mul'tireligioznaja because here comes and works many people from different countries with different religious vozrenijami. The Church is open 24 hours a day. So if you come in Summer or Dark seasons boldly come inside. If stand face to the front of the building, the entrance is on the right. When entering, don't forget to take your shoes off is a local tradition. Can wear slippers. Dimensions on them. Wardrobe is sparava from the Hall. A little further there are toilets. Climb from the lobby floor 2. The third priest lives with his family. Once inside you are surprised because anything to do with our idea of religious institutions, this church has not. It looks more like a café, Museum, Club or library with the stuffed polar bears. Immediately upon entering will see the book of wishes of guests and a box for donations. There is a desire-throw a coin. Next, you find yourself in a room where you can enjoy a free tea or coffee shop chashhechku (left on stoike about counter), eating at the Opera Garnier. Read a book. True Norwegian bukmole. Tweet or upload a picture at Instagramm. WiFi network password right on the bookshelves or this fyrtotwvfk Here "local" population typically occurs for any meetings. The next Hall stand rows of chairs, the organ and the altar per se. More like on stage. Style is very ascetic and Scandinavian way simple. New impressions you are guaranteed.
