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.

The Bodo Domkirke is built on the site of the previous town cathedral bombed in WWII. Entry is free and worth visiting.

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.

Amazing good performing by Bodø Cathedral choir with solo artist Frode Alnæs, who was guest singer/ gitar player and composed all the melodies and songs for this special concert

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

Girlfriend and I stopped in on a weekend. Only person inside (who we could see) was practicing on the organ, which sounds beautiful. We stood and listened for a few minutes. I would see if services or any sort of performances occurring during your stay,...More

Worth 15 minutes if you're walking past. It's beautiful in it's simplicity and lack of ostentation. Very simple. I loved the steel heating pipes under each pew.

Detached steeples seem to be a trend in Bodo as we saw a few buildings with this design. This church by far was the best example of this style. Unfortunately closed during our visit so can't comment on the interior.
