R e y k j a v Ý k , I c e l a nd (Must see thread) July 16th, 2005 today taken

Here are some recent pics I have taken. ReykjavÝk has a population of 180,000 (metro) and it feels like there are 1 million people. The city is very spread out (luckily it has a dense urban core) and has many suburbs. It is a very noticeable blend of American and European influences. I decided to show a lot of panoramas, etc.

My favorite club in ReykjavÝk, NASA...so much fun. Reykjavik has a famed nightlife. For a city of its size, there are about 30 clubs/bars which is pretty damn impressive.



Downtown street, Laugavegur



Just before people are going out to party...after work hours.



Packed sidewalks...



Typical Saturday night



Kˇpavogur, suburb of Reykjavik (25,000 people)



Kˇpavogur, Hafnafj÷r­ur 2 largest suburbs of ReykjavÝk





Brei­holt, suburb of ReykjavÝk



Ugly commieblocks post WWII



Getting into the old city of Reykjavik





Downtown in the far distance





A different angle, taken from Kˇpavogur, looking downtown



Inside Kringland, a downtown shopping mall, just to prove that YES, Iceland is a modern country with shopping malls, etc



Ugly commieblocks - hey, at least they have color!



The "ghetto" known as Brei­holt. Bad shape in some suburbs



Fjord outside RVK



Downtown



Old town



Brand new towers downtown





Tower district



An old residential street



Quiet Sunday



One of the many highways that run through the city



9pm downtown street



From my apartment

These aren't mine below:





70% of Reykjavikurs live in apartments






Note, Iceland can't have any buildings taller than 14 floors because the fire department isn't big enough apparently! :P




Enjoy! Leave a comment, too!

It seems very cool - I would love to go there. It doesn't look like a 1 million city though.

I think city has its own distinct style. Looks very cozy and geothermal.
