General opinion:  Since 1895, Reykjavik, the warmest capital of Europe, is the capital of Iceland.
The name Reykjavik means Bay of damp or Smoky Bay given to the city because of the warm water coming from the subsoil. The Vikings knew its properties and used it for their baths: today the warm water is used for the heating. The abundance of water promotes the swimming, which is Iceland’s national sport thanks also to the plenty of geothermic swimming pools all over the city.
The city is immersed in two distinguished worlds:
on one hand is the progress of the new technology;
... More /> on the other one is the marvellous and uncontaminated nature.
Iceland has a population of about 180.000 people which is mostly concentrated in the capital and its surrounding towns.
It is the main business, trade, communication and cultural centre in the whole country whose theatres, concert halls, art galleries, cafeterias, restaurants, hotels and shopping centres can delight and satisfy every taste!
The local currency of the country is the Icelandic Crown.
Climate is cold but temperate thanks to the gulf current: it is cold in the winter and rather mild in the summer. Climate is milder on the coast but very variable with frequent precipitations, rain or snow.
To better enjoy a visit there it is recommended to be equipped for all kinds of weather.
