Reykjavík is home to astonishing 20th Century neo-gothic architecture. Some of the places are located close to Hávallagata - some are in neighbouring areas

Bergur:Probably Reykjavík's most famous building. Take a moment to try to look past its iconic statute and view it with strict aesthetic means.

Reykjavík History

Hávallagata lies very close to the oldest part of Reykjavík - which is also the oldest part of human settlement in Iceland

Coffee, swim and food at Hofsvallagata

Just down the road you will find the neighbourhood swimming pool, Vesturbæjarlaug, and the local café, Kaffi Vest. The two pair well together.

Bergur:This is, in my humble opinion, Reykjavík's best swimming pool.

Kaffihús Vesturbæjar
Bergur:A very good coffee house - also serves booze and food :)

Bergur:This new hamburger and chicken wing place is just right by the swimming pool.
Image - Melabúðin
Bergur:For groceries I recommend Melabúðin - it's not big, but it has everything, has good opening hours and lots of fresh meat and fish.
