Overview

Kiruna, in Norrbotten County, Norrland, is located in northern Sweden and is the largest town in Swedish Lapland. Area wise, it is the second largest municipality in the world (about 20,000 sq km) and is half the size of Switzerland. The mountain Kebnekaise, lying to the west of Kiruna, is Sweden’s highest mountain. There are more than 6,000 lakes and seven rivers in this region.
The damp air and low temperatures result in a harsh winter. Being close to the Arctic Circle, Kiruna has constant daylight almost always. In May–July, it experiences the midnight sun, and then the polar night in the last three weeks of December.
  
The vast expanse of Kiruna is sparsely populated. It has about 25,000 inhabitants only and is often called ‘the last wilderness in Europe’. The town is highly dependant on the mining and iron-ore industries.
