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.

  • An impressive church by its size and its structure. This place of worship is above all a place of gathering for the local population which has many religions. The Catholic signs are so little present. The future of this Church also impresses as the sub floor is undermined by all the galleries. And like other buildings in the center of kiruna, the Church is doomed to be swallowed up. but various projects include self to lift to move in what will be the new city center, self disassemble and install the drive in its new quarters. Two Titanic projects that will have to be finalized for 2030 because the city will be swallowed by that date.

  • ... ... in the sense that it was built on purpose x be disassembled and reassembled together to displacement of Kiruna, a mining town that needs to move depending on the performance of underground springs of the mine. Very unique and impressive, it's worth a visit!

  • This wooden church was built in 1912 for Sami people. Out side structure is unique. There is apainting from Prince Eugene. It has a very small cross in the bottom of the painting.  more »

Where to stay in Kiruna

In the Arctic town of Kiruna, most accommodations lie in town, including cottages, cabins, guesthouses, and a handful of mid-market hotels and bed and breakfasts. If your budget allows, stay in the world-renowned ice hotel. Abisko National Park is an hour or so outside the main town, so if that's your reason for visiting, opt to stay at a mid-market or upscale hotel near the park. You can also camp in the park itself and take a guided tour to see the Northern Lights.
