Reykjavík - Ísland


Iceland , Reykyavik 13-11-2014

New country in my collection Iceland a Nordic country between the North Atlantic and the Arctic Ocean.
Reykjavík is the capital and largest city of Iceland. Its latitude, at 64°08' N, makes it the world's northernmost capital of a sovereign state and a popular tourist destination.
Reykjavík is believed to be the location of the first permanent settlement in Iceland, which Ingólfur Arnarson is said to have established around AD 870. Until the 18th century, there was no urban development in the city location. The city was founded in 1786 as an official trading town and grew steadily over the next decades, as it transformed into a regional and later national center of commerce, population, and governmental activities. It is among the cleanest, greenest, and safest cities in the world.
Postcard is received as private swap with Lia, thank you for contributing to my collection with nice postcard from awesome country.

Capital: Reykyavik
Population: 325,671 (2014)
