One of the best things to do while in Reykjavik is to visit the tallest building in all the land: the hallgrímskirkja church. It’s the easiest thing to spot, as it’s one of few buildings that are more than just a few stories high! It sits at the end of one of the main streets in downtown Reykjavik.
The architecture is outstanding, and makes this building a true landmark for the city. While I was visiting, people gathered around to take endless photos of the facade. It’s unique shape and design makes it a focal point and it seems like the city takes shape around it. I knew as soon as I saw it that I had to get myself to the top to see the view! It was easy enough to do: just take the elevator to the top floor then go up a flight of stairs to reach the best view of downtown Reykjavik!
