Here you have Alþingi the parliament, great museums and cultural institutions, Laugavegur shopping street as well as top notch hotels, bars and restaurants offering food from every corner of the world, and of course the freshest fish from the ice cold Icelandic waters. Not to forget the new concert and conference hall Harpa by the harbor. Reykjavík is a lively metropolis that hardly ever goes to sleep.
