Kiruna Kyrka, Kiruna
(4.4/5 based on 220+ reviews on the web)
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. By using our Kiruna travel itinerary planner, you can arrange your visit to Kiruna Kyrka and other attractions in Kiruna.

  • Very very beautiful church. Entirely in solid wood, but in an unusual size. That is, larger (!) format. The feeling that everyone in the city can get. Detailed. Worth a visit, albeit short. Takes only a few min from town o walk to.

  • A very impressive place! I felt reassured after entered inside. It is definitely worth a visit among other attractions in Kiruna.
  • We only got a quick glance because they were closing but it was very impressive.
  • Original and beautiful church
  • 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
