  Reykjavik in Iceland
by coceng

Reykjavik is Iceland's capital. It's laidback, surrounded by mountain sceneries & has many nice (quirky, that's a compliment !) museums, architectures & art objects scattered around the capital.
First stop for me was this church by the name of Hallsgrimskirkja. Protruding from the city centre which can be seen from miles away !
The exterior depicts of Iceland basalt rock formations.
The tower of the church.
This church is situated on Skolavordustigur, Its construction started in 1940's & completed in 1974 !
