Reykjavik is a harsh “smoky bay”, where the Norwegian Viking Arnarson arrived from time immemorial to build a home on its shores. The capital of Iceland is special. It fits so harmoniously into the magnificent northern landscape that it seems as if the steeple of the Hatlgrimskirkya Church, which is pointing upwards, is the top of a flaming volcano, and the northern lights are about to light up on the glass walls of the Harpa.
Reykjavik has a unique aura. Its charm captures the traveler from the first minutes. There are no old buildings here, but there is a grandiose Perlan and modern museums. Tourists will not see traditional cathedrals and cobblestone squares in the capital of Iceland, but they will fully enjoy a walk along the embankment, which offers a stunning view of the ocean.
