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.

This church is the largest and most important church in the Arctic city of Rovaniemi. When I look at it from a distance, I think it is a small church. When I look closer, it turns out to be quite tall, and it can be seen that this church is quite new.
Today this church was rebuilt in 1950, so regardless of the materials used in the structure of the church, it is relatively modern, but this is also the most important church in the area, but it seems that when there is no one to go.
This is the most important church in the area. It has been destroyed before. This church was rebuilt in modern times. It looks very small. It is on an open ground, especially after heavy snowfall.
