This unique church is located on a hill with a nice view of the surroundings. The church it self is really nice with an amazing interior. A must visit once you are in kiruna.

It doesn't take long to visit this church, but I'd still recommend it. It's big (according to Swedish circumstances) and unusual, because it's made of wood. + Setting is beautiful, at least in winter, when it's surrounded (and slightly covered) by snow + Unusual wooden church, painted red

This is a must see church before it is dismantled to be moved away to Kiruna's new site, where it will be re-assembled.

Interesting wood made church. It is amazing to know that will be moved completely from its current place (due mine issues).

We didn't have much time to go in as we had to head to another location. But the church is worth seeing.
