The Relocation of Kiruna

(1 March)

The whole town of Kiruna is being relocated to avoid the town being swallowed by the mine ore.

In the fall of 2022 the shops and other services will have moved to the new center.

Kiruna church will be taken down piece by piece to be re-built in a new location in 2025.

Some buildings are being taken down to be re-built in a new location. Other buildings are demolished, and new ones built in another part of town.
