Rovaniemi Church is located in Rovaniemi, a city in the Arctic Circle. It is one of the most important churches in the area. The church as seen now was completed in 1950, and the previous church building was destroyed in the bombing of the city in 1944. After the war, the current Rovaniemi church was built with the strong economic support of Sweden and the United States. The new Rovaniemi church was designed and built by architect Bertel Liljeqvist. It is 43 meters high and 18.5 meters wide. Its prominent minaret is 54 meters high. The overall shape is very exquisite; especially in In winter, the white snow covers this Arctic city, and the towering Rovaniemi church gives people a sacred and solemn tranquility. The entire church can accommodate 850 people, and its interior is exquisitely decorated by the artist Antti Salmenlinna (Antti Salmenlinna). Behind the altar of the church, there is a 14-meter-high mural, called "The Origin of Life". It was painted by Professor Lennart Segerstråle in 1951. It has great appreciation and historical value. There is also a 45-key organ produced by the Christensen Organ Factory in the church. It was installed here in 1987 and is also worth visiting.
It’s very small. It’s a bit far away from the No. 8 bus from Santa Claus Village to the main station. It’s a little more than ten minutes to walk. The library was recommended by the visitor service center of Santa Claus Village, saying that there are many art exhibitions in it, and that the building is specially designed.
This church gives people a very sacred feeling, there is a serene solemnity, the interior decoration is also very exquisite, it is very worthy of appreciation, the organ is also worth seeing. The environment outside the church is also very quiet and elegant, not bad
The cathedral is in the westmost part of the town, it is located in an open area, and the surrounding area seems to be a green park. The cathedral was destroyed and later rebuilt. The exterior is grander and beautiful, and it is worth going.
