Iceland, Capital region

The northernmost capital city in the world, Reykjavik is home to some of Iceland's best cultural, historical, and natural sites.

Reykjavík is the capital and largest city of Iceland. Reykjavík is famous for its weekend nightlife - Icelanders tend to go out late, so bars that look rather quiet can fill up suddenly—usually after midnight on a weekend. There are over 100 different bars and clubs in Reykjavík most of them are located on Laugavegur and its side streets and it is very common for an establishment that is a café before dinner to turn into a bar in the evening.Laugavegur is also the main shopping street. Other attractions in town include the Blue Lagoon geothermal spa, National Museum of Iceland, Vikin Maritime Museum, Rauðhólar and the Heiðmörk forest.
