(4.4/5 based on 240+ 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.

  • We didn't have much time to go in as we had to head to another location. But the church is worth seeing. 
  • Church of Kiruna was built between 1909 and 1912 years by architect Gustav Vikmana. It is the parish church of the Diocese of Luleå. The Church, a unique appearance, nothing of the sort in Northern Europe we are no longer seen. The Church is situated in the natural park, close to the Centre of Kiruna

  • 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
