Reykjavik (meaning ‘smoky bay’) is a hub of creativity, energy and wonder – and as the capital of Iceland, I’d expect nothing less. A city of artists and dreamers, you’ll find enough colour and vitality to brighten even the darkest of days, which is important, given that daylight is often limited during the winter months.
There is so much creativity that walls cannot contain it. In fact, in Reykjavik, walls are public canvases and the building themselves are sculpting blocks. The most impressive architectural designs are undoubtedly Harpa concert hall and Hallgrímskirkja church, both popular tourist destinations.
I’d argue that Reykjavik is, per capita, the most artistic city on our green Earth…but hey, don’t just take my word for it, take a look for yourself!
