Unfortunately we arrived just after closing, but seeing the outdoor area was a good experience as well. Will be going back to visit when in the area.

We hadn't planned to stay in Kiruna, but an airline lost our luggage, and we had to wait for it. I went for a walk and found this beautiful building. The outside is nice, but the inside is exceptional. The architecture and care is amazing.

This is a truly remarkable church. Shape, location, and especially the light inside. Simple forms, beautiful woodwork, serene, and a place where it is easy to contemplate.

A beautiful church to visit especially in the morning Sunday service when locals and others gather together. A great building structure sending you back into Vicking times.

Interesting church with a lot of symbolism and beauty in it's simplicity. Worth a visit if you are in Kiruna. It was voted "the most beautiful building in Sweden" in 2011. It is situated on a small hill in the city center.

We took a walk down to the church one evening, and it was locked up, so we came back the next day. I think our pictures of the outside were better at night, but it was worth it to come back and see inside. Loots...More

The wooden structure of the church is as beautiful from the architectonic point of view as impressive from the technical one. Inspiring peace and meditation even to the non believers.

I have been twice in Kiruna; first it was during summer and it felt like a ghost town somehow, a bit depressing. I tried to visit the church but could not get in as it was closed... I am happy I gave a second chance...More

This wooden church was built in 1912 for Sami people. Out side structure is unique. There is apainting from Prince Eugene. It has a very small cross in the bottom of the painting.
