Reykjavik is the capital of Iceland, the only city in the country and the world's northernmost national capital. It is also Iceland's tourism capital, with a world-famous nightlife and over 100 different bars and clubs, most located on Laugavegur and its side streets.
However, drinks are very expensive in Reykjavik's bars, and many locals and visitors instead congregate and drink at several outdoor geothermal swimming pools in the city. These are an important part of Icelandic culture and a great way to relax with Icelanders.
Tourists would also be well-advised to take a walk around the Old City, check out the view from Perlan (a rotating restaurant atop the water towers), and visit the Hallgrímskirkja, a hilltop church with a famous statue of Leif Ericsson. Reykjavik is also a great place for outdoor and natural pursuits, such as horseback riding, whale watching, whitewater rafting and snowmobiling. Venture beyond the capital to experience the country's stunningly beautiful strange and surreal landscapes.
Added Mar 09, 2009 by delahayerobNot many cities can offer a clean beach and warm sea close to the city centre. Reykjavík is lucky enough to be able to offer this at Nauthólsvík. Here the Atlantic ocean has been heated up to create warm spots in the sea. Also about 3000m2 of the bay have been warmed up for keen swimmers. On nice summer days this place is a must! This is also a good resort for sporting activities such as surfing and sailing. Nauthólsvík beach opened, in summer 2000.

The most noticeable features about the Hallgrímskirkja are its size on one hand, and its location on the other. Along with its height, the location makes it possible to see this church from almost everywhere in Reykjavík. The church tower is almost 75 meters high and the panoramic view from the top is spectacular. The church took decades to build. The church owns quite a few pieces of religious art, worth seeing. Amongst them is a beautiful statue of Christ by one of Iceland's most famous sculptors, Einar Jónsson. The church belongs to the Lutheran State church.

Added Mar 09, 2009 by delahayerobThough Iceland may seem an unlikely place to find a premiere Argentinean dance festival, this event has been steadily growing since it was first introduced in 2002. In addition to the stunning tango shows, the festival also provides several professionally guided workshops and classes to those interested in learning the art of the dance. In addition, they host concerts and dinners for participants. If you want to arrive at the festival with even more knowledge under your belt, be sure to check out Tango Club Reykjavik's website for information on year-long classes and practice events.

Added Mar 09, 2009 by delahayerobThe National Gallery was founded in 1884 and houses the national collection of nineteenth, twentieth and twenty-first-century Icelandic and international art. Furthermore, the National Gallery is a center for the study, documentation and promotion of Icelandic art. The Gallery's current location is relatively new, but for many years this central institution of Icelandic art was more or less homeless. However, in 1988 an elegant old ice-house, located by the Reykjavík pond and originally designed by state architect Guðjón Samúelsson in 1916-17, was extensively restored and extended to house the National Art Gallery. The National Gallery regularly exhibits a variety of works from its own collection, as well as holding extensive exhibitions of works by Icelandic and international artists, classic, modern and contemporary, every year, such as the Ásgrímur Jónsson Collection.
