Overview

Bodo cathedral was completed in 1956. A 12 metre stained glass window, 10 tapestries from Nordland, and a rose window decorate the beautiful interior. The cathedral is built as a basilica in the Gothic style. It was designed by the architects Blakstad & Munthe Kaas and was one of the first churches in Norway to have a detached steeple. Free admission.

A short walk uphill takes you to the cathedral. A plain building with an unusual detached bell tower. We found the cathedral open as there was a wedding taking place. A man on the door welcomed us in and we stayed a few minutes. A...More

The exterior, I don't know what style to call it, but it was cool. The interior is what one expects of Scandinavian design in a church - in a good way. We spent about half an hour here before leaving town, and glad we did....More

This is a very nice place to visit if you are in town. Its got a very scandinavian look but not sure if its the old or new style. Irrespective of the style I enjoyed spending time inside the church due to its interesting architecture.

A modern church (Ithink it was built after the destruction of WWII) Fairly plain construction contrasts well with he stained glass windows. Worth a bit of your time.

Bodo cathedral is an interesting modern structure, part of the postwar rebuilding of the town. Definitely worth a visit to see the stained glass.
