Reykjavík is the capital and largest city of Iceland. Its latitude, at 64°08′ N, makes it the world’s northernmost capital of a sovereign state and a popular tourist destination.
Lonelyplanet says this about Reykjavík: “The world’s most northerly capital combines colourful buildings, quirky, creative people, eye-popping design and a capricious soul to devastating effect.
In many ways Reykjavík is strikingly cosmopolitan for its size. After all, it’s merely a town by international standards, and yet it’s loaded with excellent museums, captivating art, rich culinary choices, and funky cafes and bars. When you slip behind the shiny tourist-centric veneer (it is a great base for tours to the countryside) you’ll find a place and a populace that mix aesthetic-minded ingenuity with an almost quaint, know-your-neighbours sense of community.
Add a backdrop of snow-topped mountains, churning seas and crystal-clear air, and you, like many visitors, may fall helplessly in love, returning home already saving to come back.” Read more: http://www.lonelyplanet.com/iceland/reykjavik#ixzz3nzBO2Rs6
