Hallgrímskirkja
Reykjavik

Hallgrímskirkja is sometimes called the National Cathedral of Iceland, although the Evangelical Lutheran Church of Iceland does not approve that designation. It is however the only Icelandic church that offers services in English, one Sunday a month.  The 1930 memorial to Leifur Eiriksson in the plaza is a gift of the U.S. government, commemorating the 1000th anniversary of the worlds oldest democratic parliament.  Learn more on wikipedia: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hallgr%C3%ADmskirkja

More About Reykjavik

A nature paradise complete with icecap, glaciers, geysers, volcanoes, and waterfalls, the climate is surprisingly mild (considering its northerly latitude) thanks to the Gulf Stream. Iceland boasts a modern infrastructure – in fact, it’s just over 300,000 residents enjoy what is one of the most developed and egalitarian societies on the planet, where most of the energy is provided by renewable sources and virtually all of the electricity is generated from hydropower and geothermal energy.
