Famous Heart of Reykjavik
Heart of ReykjavikStay.com Editors' Note
Reykjavik Harbour was for many years the center of all commercial activity in the city, and indeed, it could be said that it was the heart and soul of this sea-faring nation.
Even today, the harbor is still a very busy one with dozens of ships coming and going each day that will fascinate anyone interested in maritime things.
Most of the vessels arriving and departing the port these days are fishing boats, so it’s no surprise to discover that the city’s biggest fresh market is also lurking around here. Be sure to take a look at this thriving place during your visit to Reykjavik!
