Fodor's Review

Tromsø's signature structure was designed by Jan Inge Hovig to evoke the shape of a Sami tent as well as the iciness of a glacier. Opened in 1964, it represents northern Norwegian nature, culture, and faith. The immense stained-glass window depicts the Second Coming. There are midnight sun concerts in summer, starting at 11:30 pm.
