Reykjavik the Northernmost capital in the world

We are born and raised in Reykjavík. Reykjavík centre has a special meaning to us because we have seen it grow almost from turf houses to the large concrete buildings we see today. Reykjavík is a mixture of the old and the new.
We still have fishing plant in the capital but we rarely smell the fish like we did.

    Stop At: Grjótagata, 101 Reykjavík, Iceland

    Grjótaþorp (Grjóti Village) derives its name from Grjóti, one of eight smallholdings on the estate of Reykjavík in the 18th century. The farmstead stood here on Grjótabrekka (Grjóti Slope) at the top of Grjótagata. In the latter half of the 18th century, when wooden buildings were being constructed on Aðalstræti, a cluster of turf houses grew up on the Grjóti property.
    Grjótaþorp fell into a state of dilapidation in the 20th century, due to plans for building a major road through it.
    That idea was ultimately abandoned, and today all the old wooden houses have been renovated; in addition a number of wooden buildings from other districts have been rebuilt in Grjótaþorp, consolidating the old street plan.
    Grjótaþorp, one of the oldest extant quarters of wooden buildings in Reykjavík, is characterised by narrow streets with detached wooden houses in small, well-tended gardens.
