Norway: check out the beautiful Arctic Cathedral in Tromso

Meet the Arctic Cathedral ! This 1965 structure is a landmark of Tromsรธ, capital of the Arctic!โฃ ๐Ÿ‡ณ๐Ÿ‡ด It was designed by the Architect Jan Inge Hovig, and it is a Parish church.
It is not to be confused with the Tromso Cathedral ! The Arctic Cathedral is located in the Tromsdalen Valley, which is a urban neighborhood of the City.
That was my last trip just before the pandemic started (march 2019). It’s an interesting structure with aluminium panels on the roof.

I didn’t go inside though, there was an entrance fee. I have issues paying to enter a religious establishment, I feel not everyone is able to contribute in the same way, and out of principle, religious places should not have a price tag.โฃ It seems to be open to the public on Sunday afternoons, though, so maybe you can get to check out the inside then, and the organ and glass mosaic.

A few pictures of the Arctic Cathedral at different times of the day:
