Arctic Cathedral

Just before the Troms¸ bridge on the mainland sits the delightfully triangular Tromsdal Church, better known as the Arctic Cathedral. This striking example of the bold modern architecture now common throughout Norway was designed by Jan Inge Hovig in 1965, and is worth visiting for the immense 1500 sq. ft. stained glass window showing the return of Christ that occupies the building’s entire east end.
