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.

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

This is a stunningly beautiful picturesque church, located by the Tjörnin pond. The church is over 110 years old, but it does not show its age and look quite modern, actually. The church offers an amazing photo-op when standing near the city hall and taking...More
