Kirkenes is a town in Sør-Varanger Municipality in Finnmark county, in the far northeastern part of Norway. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Kirkenes: Skoltesamisk Museum (in Neiden) and Grense Jakobselv (Lungomare & Kong Oscar II's kapell). There's still lots to do: see the interesting displays at Varanger Museum, take in the exciting artwork at Galleri ArtikA, pause for some photo ops at Soviet Liberation Monument, and pause for some serene contemplation at Kirkenes Church.
