Tromso Cathedral

Tromso Cathedral in Norway

Tromsø Cathedral (Norwegian: Tromsø domkirke) in Tromsø, Norway, is the episcopal seat of the Diocese of Nord-Hålogaland of the Church of Norway. It is the only Norwegian cathedral made of wood.

The church is built in Gothic revival style, with the church tower and main entrance on the west front. It is probably the northernmost Protestant cathedral in the world. With 800 seats, it is one of Norway's biggest wooden churches.

The structure was completed in 1861, and it is situated in the middle of Tromsø on a site where in all likelihood there has been a church since the 13th century. (source:
