It was a great shame that throughout the 5 days we were in Tromso, we were unable to gain access to this church at all. It should be open to the public at all times.

This Cathedral is the centre of Tromso. It is very old, circa late 1800 built entirely in wood with external wooden painted slats. It is beautiful inside, just like a Tardis, so large, welcoming and so bright and cheery. Although there are still construction works...More

This is a pretty church but it was closed in the am so we had to come back in the afternoon. Inside it is very lovely.

Only saw the outside but there is lots of history in the church in a town where half is modern and the other half old, mainly due to a fire in the town in 1996.

I am not sure why this was closed a few times we visited but from the outside, Tromso Cathedral is a site to visit. The lovely architecture made of wood, said to have been completed during the 1880s.
