For a taste of modern northern architecture, visit The Arctic Cathedral, one of Tromso's important churches. Built in 1965 and partially inspired by Sydney, Australia's famous opera house, the church showcases a triangular construction and a glass frontal facade. Though the main structure is concrete, it's covered by aluminum sheets. Explore the interior of the church, which, though mostly minimalist, boasts an intricate stained-glass window on one end (as well as an organ with nearly 3,000 pipes). Be sure to bring your camera and get a shot of the cathedral from a distance or across the water, as the peaked structure stands out starkly against the mountainous backdrop. Put The Arctic Cathedral into our Tromsdalen attractions tool to see other points of interest to visit during your vacation in Tromsdalen.
The Arctic Cathedral reviews
Really beautiful and outstanding. I love the fact that it’s visible from all around Tromso. It’s worth stopping by and taking a few close ups on the way to the cable car. I haven’t been inside so I cannot comment on that.
Beautiful church. Walked over the Tromsø bridge and it was definitely a fun walk and exciting to see the close getting closer and close as you battled the wind to get there. Lovely stained glass window inside the church, not much else to see on the inside but a beautiful building well worth making an effort to see.
