Arctic cathedral

The Arctic Cathedral is sometimes also called the ice sea cathedral. Although the building was given the name cathedral, it is in fact not a cathedral. This is a parochial church.

The church was already built in 1965 but even today, it still looks very modern.
If you stay in the city center of Tromso it is easy to spot the church across the bridge. To get a little closer to the Cathedral you have to cross the nearly two-kilometer bridge. A long walk, but definitely worth it.
If you are lucky you can see the aurora borealis shining behind the church. From the church you have a very nice view over Tromsø.
