Say Hallgrimskirkja five times fast, I dare you.
It’s beautiful and ugly at the same time. It’s majestic and blah. It’s symmetrical and boring. It’s unique and inspiring. It’s many things, some times even things that are contradictory – all at once. It’s a site to see.
The top of the church sits high above the rest of the city and you can see the top from far away.
I’m told the view from above is amazing. That’s great if you don’t have a fear of heights like I do. The rest of my family went up, while I checked out the gift shop.
Outside of the church is the statues of Leif Erikson. Here’s the inscription on the back.
