KIRUNA


Kiruna kyrka


The wooden church was built in 1912 in the form of Sami hut.
It also traced the features of the American wood architecture with influences from Norwegian frame church architecture.

A free-standing bell tower in front is supported by pillars, and the tombstone of the founder of Kiruna. Above the main door of the church is a relief, a group dedicated to the Sami under the clouds in the sky.

It was built by the architect Gustav Vikmana.

Inside is a statue of St. George killing drakna.

Above the altar painted frieze of Lotte Zeynfoldta.

In the design of the church attended by Prince Eugene, as well as Christian Eriksson, who created the terrain for the facade of the building.

In 2001 the church was recognized as the most beautiful building in Sweden.
