Welcome to Reykjavik – The Capital of Iceland

Reykjavik is the capital city of Iceland and the most northern capital city in the world. Since it’s located very close to the arctic circle, Reykjavik gets only a few hours of daylight a day during winter months and almost no night-like darkness in the Summer. Given the population of Reykjavik, the capital of Iceland along with its nearby towns of Seltjarnarnes, Mosfellsbaer, Kopavogur, Hafnarfjordur and Gardabaer (aka Greater Reykjavik Area) are home to the majority of Icelanders.

Most of Iceland’s government, public and economic institutions, including the Icelandic Parliament are located in Reykjavik. The capital of Iceland is also home to country’s main hospital, the University of Iceland, the national museum, and much more.

Throughout recent years, the capital of Iceland has grown in population due to high living standards offered not only by the city, but an entire country. Reykjavik is highly modernized with great infrastructure and world class amenities. Nightlife in Reykjavik is vibrant, shopping malls are classy, culture and art segments are nothing short of brilliant, food is delicious and festivals are mind-blowing.
