The Churches of Gotland

SLITE

The church was built 1959-60 after designs by the Danish architect Holger Jensen. The building is all modern, simple and pure in form. The walls consist mostly of glass and in the east is a wide view over the sea. The interior is characterized by the huge wooden roof, open to the roof-beam. The Rood is a work of the Slite artist Bertil Nyström
