Kiruna is Sweden’s northern most town, known for winter sports (there is down hill and cross country skiing all year) and an intricate wooden church built in 1912, the design based on a Sami tent, with an intricate roof of laced together exposed beam rafters. Though it wouldn’t stand up against the great cathedrals of Europe it is one of the most unique churches in the world and very popular with the locals who call it “The Shrine of the Nomadic People.”.
