A north Swedish 'church town' (Sw. 'kyrkstad') is a village consisting of small huts near the churches, owned by people who had to move long distances from their ordinary homes to visit the church. The biggest of these church towns is fund in Arvidsjaur, mainly built up of Samic (Lapp) huts. Today it is mainly an open-air museum, although some people still go there to spend some days, particularly in summer.
