Reykjavik is an easy which can be easily visited by foot, so it would be a good idea to head to the Touristic Information Centre and get some maps and information of this city before going there. The city has two points of reference which offer visits and help the tourist to get oriented: the Perlan (Öskjuhlid Hill) and the centric Hallgrímskirkja church, which is 75 meters tall (230 feet). Getting to the top of these buildings is a nice way to observe the city from a privileged spot. Ebooking a hotel in the capital of Iceland is a nice idea if you want to know a totally different culture.
The heart of the city is located between the Atlantic Ocean and the lake Tjörning at the north. In the middle there is the center of the capital, with its plain and broad streets full of bars, cafeterias, hotels, museums and art galleries. Finding a hotel which suits what you are looking for is easy in this city.
The modern National Gallery of Iceland is at the bank of the river, while the National Museum is located at the south of the city. At the north of the Tjörning there is the Austurvollur, a very attractive square which is very popular among the sun lovers in the hot months. The Reykjavik Art Museum has three buildings in the city: Harbour House, the Asmundur Sveinsson Sculpture Museum and Kjarvalsstadethir. To the east, uphill, there is the Laugavegur, the main street in the city around which there are many of the best cafeterias, restaurants and bars. Outside the city center but easily accessible by bus there are the Folkloric Museum and the Sigurjon Olafsson Museum. If you like Nordic culture, you should travel to this city, as there is, as you can see, an excellent cultural offer.
