This building is the tallest building in the city so it was visible from every where. It was pretty and love the surrounding areas were nice to visit.

Very big breathtaking church in the middle of town. Very plain on the inside. Must buy a ticket, $10 USD to get to the top for great views of the city. Check it out.

We didn't get to see the inside due to a funeral, but it was very nice to see on the outside. Bring a camera, and take your time exploring the church. Lots of shops & restaurants across the street.

First just admired this stunning church from outside, but later went inside and up to the tower. It costs 1000 kr to get up there but the 360 degrees view is really worth it.

This stunningly designed church dominates the city. It’s sharp line catches the morning and evening light. Loved the basalt like concrete columns on the facade. Inside it has a restful simplicity
