not spectacular, but typical. maybe just a quick glance is just fine, but only if you are close by. Don't travel far for it

Lovely woodden church in the middle of the town. Shall be moved when the city center has to move due to mining business.

An amazing piece of history, even our six and seven year old boys were peaceful in this church! The organ is spectacular. Taking a walk around the outside is highly recommended.

I´ve been living in Sweden for some time, and for me, this is the most beautiful church, so far. Definitely worth a visit, whether it´s Summer or Winter. Cosy and big wooden church, whose construction was ordered by the first Mine Manager from LKAB, about 100 years ago.

Don't miss a visit to this fascinating building. Square wooden construction, it is actually much more recently built than you might think. It will be moved when the town centre moves to its new location.

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
