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.

Ovanligt renskalad interiör med prins Eugens altart... read more »Very nice Church, do not miss the many elements that Christian Eriksson carved outside and inside. Award-winning architecture inspired by Norwegian stave churches. Exceptionally renskalad interior with Prince Eugen's altarpiece in the Centre.

We only got a quick glance because they were closing but it was very impressive.
A very impressive place! I felt reassured after entered inside. It is definitely worth a visit among other attractions in Kiruna.
A remarkably pretty building, the church is fairly unique with an almost Asian root style and a separate bell tower to the main building. It is the most beautiful building in Kiruna by quite a distance.
Very nice church, one of the few things to see in Kiruna
Didn't stay in Kiruna for long but I guess this is the one you must go and see when you're there.
