In the ongoing city's major rearrangement Kiruna Church will be moved to the new location. Church architecture is inspired by the Norwegian stave churches and the thought was that the church in shape would resemble a Sami "kåta".. With its red wooden shavings clad facades, dark tarred interior, materials and inspiration, it has a national romantic touch and is a... More

A nice walk from the central town and facinating architecture. There is not a lot to do in Kiruna and to walk to this via the park is a good experience especially when -12deg C.

In a small iron ore town this church is a masterpiece of serenity and offers a taste of local culture. Well worth the bus ride.

We weren't able to go inside, because it closes at 3:00 pm (15:00). However it's really beautiful from the outside and we could hear the organist practicing inside. Highly recommend a quick visit!

I found the church to be interesting, but not that interesting. It is a cool blend of Sami culture and Christianity, but as European churches go, it wasn't spectacular. Then again, there isn't a ton to do in Kiruna, so it's worth a visit IMO. No charge and it's right at the edge of city center.

A Christian church without the usual Christian architecture which made it nice. Sami inspired building inside and out made it a worthwhile visit. Otherwise, just another church.

Photogenic structure inside and outside. English fact sheets inside. Wooden structure is about 100 years old but looks band new.
