The house of parliament was built in 1881 in the city center. Near to it, we will see the City Hall, which is located next to the pond Reykjavikurtjörn, which is a popular place among the Icelanders to feed the ducks some bread.
Hallgrímskirkja Church is Iceland’s tallest building or 74.5 meters (244 ft). It took more than 38 years to build the church and is Iceland’s best-known landmark. The church was designed and influenced by Iceland’s mountains, basalt, glaciers, and Gudjon Samuelsson; an architect state intended this magnificent structure. The church is named after one of Iceland’s most famous clergymen and poets, Hallgrimur Petursson.
