Northern Lights Cathedral

TIME : 2016/2/18 23:02:48

Opened in 2013, the daringly designed Northern Lights Cathedral, next to the Rica Hotel Alta, promises to be one of the architectural icons of the north, with its swirling pyramid structure clad in rippling titanium sheets. The interior is similarly eye-catching, with an utterly modern 4.3m-high bronze Christ by Danish artist Peter Brandes – note how the figure gets lighter as your eyes move up the body.

The cathedral is at its best in winter when aglow in floodlights and with the aurora borealis in the sky behind. Stunning.
