Kiruna has, despite its youth, an exciting architectural history to show you. When Kiruna was founded a little over a century ago, it was built on the idea of being the most modern city in the world. Now the city has to be moved to make room for the expanding mining industry, and once again the architects are confronted with the challenge of designing an updated version of the most modern city in the world. Take the opportunity to experience the unique atmosphere of our three intertwined cultures – the Swedish, Sami and Torne Valley Finnish. Join us on a guided city tour and be fascinated by the architecture, history and future of Kiruna.
