Positioned on the southeastern edge of Iceland, Reykjavik is the planet's northernmost capital of a sovereign state, and the heart of Iceland's economic and governmental activity.
Reykjavik (a young capital city) is very different from the other Nordic capitals as it lacks the traditional European grand buildings and the picturesque old quarters.
However, the city is bursting with color and culture, no matter what time of year one visits. In the summer months, the sun hardly goes down; everything comes alive and people enjoy staying out late. In the fall and winter the city takes on a romantic ambiance with the spectacular Northern Lights on display.
This type of sign in Reykjavik, Iceland is very common, as hotdogs are a popular treat for locals and visitors alike.
According to my wife this statue in Reykjavik verifies her feelings that "A woman's work is never done, from morning light to setting sun." I have to agree.
