A wonderful wooden church in the snow

Voted the most beautiful building in Sweden by the swedish people, it clearly deserves it ! Beautiful from the outside, and definitely impressive from the inside !

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.

We have been at thr Kiruna church in December very close to Christmas and it was a wonderful view. The way up to the church is covered in snow and the church itself is standing out like a rock. No entrance fee, a good photo opportunity and with a selfie extension stick for your phone you can have a lot... More

A very pleasant place to visit. Usual simple elegance of Swedish design in a park-like setting. One can go inside the main church but the beautiful bell tower outside is off limit. It is a Free place to visit.

One is reminded of a Lapp cottage when entering the church. A number of prominent artists have contributed to the ornamentation of the church. The twelve statues show the human frames of mind, such as prayer and desperation. You can buy postcards inside.

A beautiful church, the largest wooden church we have ever seen. It was featured on a Swedish stamp, covered in snow. Free entry, open every day.
