Northern Lights Cathedral reviews
So unusual. The metal exterior is a different touch. Looks almost like a space ship in the snow. Very different and modern.

Just had a quick visit inside. The building is beautiful and it was good to see it both inside and outside. We didn't do the video tour. Had a brilliant view of the Cathedral from my hotel room :)

Amazingly beautiful. Good tour and display and movie on northern lights. Totally worth the visit.
A very modern building which represents the Aurora Borealis and clad in to titanium tiles on the outside. The inside has lighting on the walls that look like the Aurora. Quite stark inside but we'll worth a visit.
