Welcome to Gällivare


The strong Sami presence in Gällivare is reflected in its monuments. The bronze statue opposite the church, by local sculptor Berto Marklund, is called Tre seitar (seite being a Sami god of nature) and symbolises the pre-Christian Sami religion. The nearby granite sculpture Same, by Allan Wallberg, depicts a sitting Sami in North Kaitum costume.
