Fríkirkjan í Reykjavík Reykjavik Reviews
Independed Lutheran fre Church of Iceland Dec 18, 2010
Fríkirkjan í Reykjavík is one of Icelandic religious attractions. Like the Domkirkjan Cathedral, it is a state church with a history that dates way back. It was built in 1901 using Gothic architecture, and lies in the centre of Reykjavik along the Tjornin River. at night the lights illumminate the river creating an impressive view of the church from across.
In the day, the church's bright green and white draws attention to it, and across the river, swans and other birds feed. The river Tjornin is popularly refered to as the "Pond". Next to the church is a notable Art Gallery for the art lovers.
