The most interesting and beautiful tourist sites in Reykjavik
Photos, reviews, descriptions, and links to maps
Reykjavík is the rugged “Smoky Bay” where the Norwegian Viking Arnarson arrived in time immemorial to make his home on its shores. The capital of Iceland is special. It blends so harmoniously into the magnificent northern landscape that it seems as if the spire of Hatlgrimskirkja Church is the top of a blazing volcano, and the northern lights are about to shine on the glass walls of Harpa.
Reykjavík has a unique aura. Its charm captures the traveller from the first minutes. There are no ancient buildings here, but there are grandiose Perlan and modern museums. A tourist will not see traditional cathedrals and cobblestone squares in the capital of Iceland, but will fully enjoy a walk along the promenade, which offers a stunning view of the ocean.
