Iceland is called “”the land of ice””. Where there is no ice, there are mountains, volcanoes, bare land or lakes. Tourists come here as to the “”edge of the world””, because such landscapes are not found in any other corner of the Earth. Most of the attractions are natural objects – waterfalls, ice lagoon, geysers, large national parks. A certain proportion of travellers are those who came purposefully to see the famous northern lights.
However, do not think that Iceland has nothing to show in the cultural aspect. The capital of the country is actively developing and can offer travellers many places to see – a concert hall, where world celebrities often perform, a variety of museums. Popular among tourists is the city of Husavik. The whale museum and the shocking Phallological Museum are among the sightseeing objects.
