This city of Reykjavik is Iceland's chief port, more than 100,000 inhabitants. It is also the capital and centre of cod-fishing industry in Iceland. Located in the southwest part of the country, it is the world's northernmost metropolis. Reykjavik sits on the edge of Faxa Bay. It is surrounded by mountains and provides easy access to fishing and skiing. Reykjavik claims that it's "the cleanest city on earth". The city has over 50 art galleries and museums, as well as two theatre companies and a symphony orchestra. Reykjavik is also the site of Althing (parliament), Lutheran cathedral and modern Hallgrím's Church.
From Reykjavik tourists can visit the National Park on the shores of the largest lake in Iceland, with wildflowers and abundant bird life. Here too is the "Golden Falls", Gullfoss, a double cascade in Hvita River, measuring 105 feet high and dropping in 2 stages into a mile-long gorge. Nearby is regularly spouting Geysir, a thermal spring from which all hot springs have taken their name. Out on Reykjanes Peninsula, don't miss the mud pools and stem vents of Krisuvik and the Blue Lagoon, where you can bathe in mineral-rich waters.
In 874 the Vikings established the first permanent settlement in Reykjavik. The community was chartered in 1786, and in 1843 became the seat of parliament. Reykjavik was made the capital of Iceland in 1918.
