The lakeside area has the city hall, the parliament building, the green spire church, the blue lake water constitutes an elegant and tranquil panorama. The green spire is the Freedom Church, quiet and compact, looking like a building built by children playing with building blocks. On the opposite side of the church is Reykjavik City Hall, a unique building in the water.
Reykjavik's City Hall was built in Duck Lake on top of it, a very low-key building to enter from a bridge over the water. Outside I saw many swans, ducks and seagulls. The children had a good time. A large Icelandic relief in the hall of the City Hall shows the complex geographical conditions of Iceland in a very realistic way. It's interesting to see. The duck lake is outside the city hall's landing glass window. If it's too cold outside, it's good to see waterbirds inside.
I also love Reykjavik and its city hall, although I didn't even go in. This modest building hiding in the block, which is a simple building, fully demonstrates the Icelandic style. Although it is not large in scale and not grand in shape, it is not plain to use a long bridge to build on the water in the city. This is the little interest of Iceland's secret poking.
At the entrance of the city hall, unlike other countries, there are very few people hanging their own flag here.
Iceland is not a place to see architecture, natural scenery can not be seen, compared with other European city halls, the city hall is too low-key.
There is a huge 3-D map of Iceland in the city hall, which is a large "scenic spot in the city hall. But there's a function that many people don't know about - Reykjavik's official tourist information center. If you don't have time to do too much homework before you come to Iceland, or if you have additional problems and travel groups, you can come to Reykjavik's official information center if you want to make a reservation for the travel service. The official tourist centre is managed by the Reykjavik Municipal Government and operated by Guide to Iceland, Iceland's largest travel platform. The Guide to Iceland team is very internationalized and provides special Chinese service, which is very convenient. And even if you don't need to order a tour group, it's good to come here and get some free maps. Under the same roof is the Icelandic Road Safety Information Center, Safe Travel.
Iceland is famous for its natural scenery, so there is no big shining point in the building, but the city hall is unique in that it can be called a water city hall on the duck lake.
It's quite near the lake in the center of the city. Nearby are the landmarks of castles, palaces, churches, docks and so on, so it's a perfect place to visit.
Almost every European country has a city hall like this. Without going in, just look outside. It's quite close to the lake in the center of the city.
City halls are particularly distinctive, not in the city centre as in other cities, but by lakes.
