“Lovely Catholic Church”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 26, 2013

I was raised Catholic, and this is a lovely church to visit while you are in Norway. It has a lovely interior, beautiful organ, and stained glass as well.

“Interesting wooden church”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 17, 2013

Depends how much you like churches. Tromoso doesn't have a lot to offer the tourist so see everything you can.

“Lovely atmosphere and no pressure”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 10, 2013

Great place to sit and come in from the cold for a while. The atmosphere is quiet and reflective and it is possible to light candles for special people and wishes.

“Little but beautiful”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 8, 2013

This church, the northernmost protestant cathedral in the world, is in the city centre.
What can I say about it? It's little and simple, but beautiful at the same time. There are not so many high buildings in the city centre, so this church "comes up" among some little gardens and memorials.
Its all made of wood inside. You feel warm and in peace.

And it's free to visit, so why not? :D



Would I recommend it? Yes :)

“Small, simple and nice to see”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 28, 2013

A nice spot to see. It is in the middle of town so you're more than likely to walk by it any way.
We've been in winter and the garden was snowed over giving a nice look to the whole place.
Worth a 15 minute visit and some picture taking (of-course), but don't plan your day there :)
