Kirkenes is a town in Sor-Varanger Municipality in Finnmark county, in the far northeastern part of Norway. The town lies on a peninsula along the Bokfjorden, an arm of the large Varangerfjorden. Tourist attractions in town include Grenselandmuseet (The Border Area Museum) and Sami art exhibitions by the artist John Savio.
