  • Piece together the story of Reykjavik and understand the heart of the city


So you are finally in Reykjavik, the world‘s northernmost capital as your late eccentric Aunt requested. She disclosed in her last letter to you that part of your heritage is Icelandic and she wants you to connect to the hometown of your ancestors. 

It seems a daunting task to understand old Reykjavik with its disorganised streets, seemingly random street names and numbering. Even the East side or Austurbær is firmly in the western part.
