Reykjavik was home to Bobby Fischer at the end of his life. In case you don’t know who he was, well, then you probably don’t play chess. He is considered by many to be one of the greatest chess players of all time. He was an American who ended up being caught up in the Cold War between the US and USSR over income taxes. He ended up living in exile in Iceland.
Here’s the bookstore that he spent a great deal of time at while in Iceland.
How cool is that?
