On the outside the church is quite beautiful especially in the snow. The inside was rather plain compared to other churches we have been to but it should not be missed when you visit Kiruna.

Dark, warm reminiscent of the Arts and Craft style. Just walk in and enjoy,especially on a cold day. Not far from the centre.

A really special and very beautiful Church. Ir was -22°C today and the trees around the Church nicely frosted. The Church and the Bell tower looked gorgeous in the white frosty background. Very nice wooden building!

A very beautiful red church with an interesting architecture! Try to visit it if you're passing Kiruna, most of the times it's okay to just enter the church.

A beautiful church, very peaceful & deep. Very different perspective, seems like very open people. A must visit when in town.

Had read about the church but the architecture was more interesting than expected. Very different. And they had a photo exibition from our home town, which made us happy.
