Honningsvåg Church, Finnmark, Norway  

The church in Honningsvåg was consecrated in 1885 after a hurricane razed the old church in Kjelvik to the ground. The church is built in the neo Gothic style and has an important position in the population. Not least because of the burning of Finnmark in 1945. After the war the church was used as accommodation, bakery and kitchen, and today stands a symbol of hope, courage and unity – and as a tourist attraction in Honningsvåg.
