    The Harpa building is phenomenal, especially at night when it's lit up. Wonderful gift shop inside as well

    The prime minister’s office is a good representation of the Icelandic democracy: small, elegant and close to the people with no apparent security protection.
    The building dates back to mid XVIII century. Originally a prison, it became the see of the danish governors and a government building.
    Surrounded by a small lawn, with no fences, the little mansion faces the Laekjargata, the main street of central Reykjavík, marking the vicinity of the government to the citizens.

    We have two young boys so we opted for the open rehearsal on a Thursday morning. We were there with only a couple other families and loved listening to the orchestra. With this, you don't get the whole "show" effect, but it was fun to see the flip side of a rehearsal with the discussion of the piece and the extra practice that they have to put in in order to really nail a certain section of the composition. Really fun experience!

    In my work as a tour guide in Iceland "The Heart of Reykjavik" on Laugavegur 15 is usually the first place I recommend for shopping souvenirs. If stuffed Puffins and cheap mugs don't cut it for you anymore Joi and Ragga's "Specialized gift shop" is the way to go. The shop became quite well know during the Covid period when quarantined locals rushed out to buy the 1000 piece puzzle displaying houses in Reykjavík City. Posters with the same theme then become a hit as tourists started to come back this spring.
