This pretty Lutheran free church sits between Austurvöllur Square and Lake Tjörnin. It was designed by architect Rögnvaldur Ólafsson and consecrated in 1903 although it had been lengthened twice since.

This is a culturally significant church and another one in white and green colours - effectively an archetypally Icelandic build for such an establishment - worth having a look at it as part of a tour of this part of the capital. Enough space around...More

Can't miss this if you are standing on the pond in Reykjavik or by the city hall. It offers a picturesque photo opportunity. This church was built in 1899. Excellent to look at from outside.

Came across this nicely designed church while walking around the Tjornin pond. When we walked on the opposite side we got a prettier picture of the church with the water foul in the fore ground.

Nice enough church next to Austurvollur Square and the Parliament building, a 2-minute walk from Lake Tjornin (The Pond). However, pint-sized, like most of Reykjavik's attractions.

We stopped by this church for a few photos when having a general wonder throughout Reykjavik and along the pond in the freezing temperatures. The church itself is very picturesque and a great view can be achieved from the other side of the pond. Wasn't...More

It was very frustrating not being able to look around this beautiful church, as our hotel was literally 10 metres away, and we would pass it 4 or 5 times every day. The only time it was open was for a wedding. Located between the...More
