Reykjavik, Iceland’s capitol is one of the cleanest, safest, happiest cities in the world. With an urban area population of around 200,000, it is the home of the vast majority of Iceland’s inhabitants. It is the center of culture and life of the Icelandic people as well as being one of the focal points of tourism in Iceland.
The city itself is spread out, with sprawling suburbs. The city centre, however, is a very small area characterised by eclectic and colourful houses, with good shopping and dining.
We spent our evenings walking through the city, window shopping and enjoying some true Icelandic meals. (I thought I was going to die when I asked the waitress for ketchup and she brought me out a teaspoon worth in a tiny ramekin, are you kidding me!) And although the true highlight was driving around the island and exploring the wilderness of Iceland, Reykajvik is still a must see city.
