Pretty church

Lovely church with a lovely story to tell. An attempt to join all faiths together using wood gathered from Siberia. 4 min walk from the centre of town.

It's a beautiful church located at the top of a slope, esp against the white wintry background. Nice architecture, esp the golden monuments.

A beautiful church worth the stop. From the locals they mentioned, it was built to welcome people of all faiths to worship together. The church opens at 10:00, however, it can open a bit later depending on when the city gets there. Wonderful wooden architecture.

This little cute church is located at the centrum which was quiet and sweet in the Saturday morning. We took a walk around and met many local people and their friendly dogs.

This is a stunning church inside and out ! It is really a MUST when visiting Kiruna ! So many have told that before me. Why not visiting it yourself and explore if your opinion is the same ?!

Kiruna is a small town and I didn't expect to see a lot of points of interests. Maybe this church is one of the largest wooden buildings in whole Sweden, but there is not a lot to see here - no tourist informationm, which would explain the history of the building.

Kiruna is a small place, a stop at most for those enroute to ice hotel or abisko national park. We stopped for a day to just check it out. Pretty much most of it is within walking distance from our hotel which was central. The bishops arms. The church is very interesting and is fame for being built without a... More

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.
