Right near the pond sits the oldest high school in Reykjavik – Menntaskólinn í Reykjavík.
Here’s I’m offering a different view of the building, because, well, I thought it was a neat angle.
This is a really old school – dating back to 1056. You know what was going on at that time? In 1054, the Orthodox churches split off from Rome. That’s how far back we are talking.
Maybe that’s another reason for the alternative view of the building. It’s seen a great deal of change and history over time. Yet it continues to stand.
