We took photos here as our hotel was very near to the church. Very beautiful when covered in snow. We met locals who then explained about this church.

This appears to be the only church in Kirkenes and yet it’s a block away from Church Street. It’s also fairly new and has no sign outside so I don’t know if it’s Catholic, Lutheran or Russian orthodox. I couldn’t get inside so I could only take pictures of the outside. Not very impressive.

Built in 1959, the Kirkenes Church is a prominent building in the town due to its stark white colour. The grounds are well kept and it is readily accessible. Luckily, the church was open, and the inside is simple with a stunning crucifix over the altar. The simple stained glass windows add to the beauty. Worth a look. Thanks for your vote.

Appreciated walking around the church, but entry was denied. Why are so many of Norway's churches locked?
