When visiting the small-town of Kiruna, it is essential to visit the beautiful church in the centre that appears on many local postcards. Construction on the wooden church started in 1907 and it was built on the orders of the LKAB mining company (who founded Kiruna), its style influenced by that of a Sami tent. In 2001 it was voted Sweden's best looking religious building and it is easy to see why as this unique shaped church is exquisitely designed. You would probably not spend more than 20 minutes looking around the church/in the church itself (which is free), but it is worth dropping by when in town as it really is a "one-off" style of building that leaves a lasting impression.
