This is a one of the main churches in Kiruna, and certainly one of the most beautiful wooden churches that i have seen, even if it is fairly new it doesn't look it. It is situated near the centre of Kiruna, and is definitely worth visiting if you are in the area. Around the roof line are 12 golden statues... More

There are very few sights in Kiruna so why miss this interesting church. It resembles the Norwegian stave churches but it's pretty young (from the 1910s). The wooden structure of the church is really nice. Simple but nice - typically Swedish :) There is free entry, so it's recommended to spend 10-20 minutes on it, even if you are not... More

A wooden church that is uniquely designed. Both the exterior and the interior is fascinating. Inside a lot of light. A wall painting in the front by Prince Eugen. Other ornaments by Christian Ericsson - to note are particularly the 10 figures outside.

We stopped here after lunch, it is a lovely church to have a look around, and there are printed sheets in English to explain the history. A local was telling us that as part of the relocation of Kiruna away from the mine, the church is going to be dismantled and moved to a new location, which will be a... More

This is the first time I'm coming across a church that doesn't explicitly look like one. It appeared more like a Chinese pagoda to me. I think its the architecture of the church and the brick red paint it dons that makes it stand out on a white sheet of snow so extraordinarily! The church is surrounded by a large... More

We visited the outside of this church one evening in early January on our visit to Kiruna. It was lovely to see as it is a beautiful building & so picturesque in the glistening white pristine snow that surrounds it. We would have liked to see inside but unfortunately it closes I think at 3pm. Well worth a visit to... More

Lovely old church smelling of natural wood. A true Swedish experience. The church will be moved once the city of Kiruna moves due to mining works.

This, one of the top attractions in Kiruna, is a must see for sure. Do not be dissapointed once you step in though, because it is rather depressive with all the dark wood. Definitely worth seeing, it looks beautiful in winter with all the snow around.
