Arctic Cathedral - Ishavskatedralen, Tromsø: 16 reviews and 47 photos
This is the most famous church of Tromsø: Tromsdalen Kirke / Ishavskatedralen /
Artic Cathedral / Eismeer-Kathedrale, and all of these names are for for this most spektacular churche in Norway ! Some people think it is a tourist-trap but I think it is worth seeing from outside and that it is also worth to take a look inside, although it is just a modern church. From outside it looks a bit like an iceberg or maybe like a whale and it is interesting how the windows were made between the rips of that whale.
Ishavskatedralen was built in 1965 by the norwegian architect Jan Inge Hovig .Get inside and have a look,the church is mostly open for a few hours daily, whenever the Hurtigruten-ships are in Tromsoe ! The interior is simple but also interesting and the large window facing the port has the largest glass-mosaique in Europe. There is a small entrance-fee to be payed there and they have a souvenirshop there as well.
