Reykjavík

More details

Reykjavík ( RAYK-yə-vik, RAYK-yə-veek; Icelandic: [ˈreiːcaˌviːk]) is the capital and largest city of Iceland. It has a latitude of 64°08' N, making it the world's northernmost capital of a sovereign state, and is a popular tourist destination. It is located in southwestern Iceland, on the southern shore of Faxa Bay. With a population of around 123 300 (and over 216 940 in the Capital Region), it is the heart of Iceland's cultural, economic and governmental activity.
Reykjavík is believed to be the location of the first permanent settlement in Iceland, which, according to Ingólfur Arnarson, was established in AD 874. Until the 19th century, there was no urban development in the city location. The city was founded in 1786 as an official trading town and grew steadily over the next decades, as it transformed into a regional and later national centre of commerce, population, and governmental activities. It is among the cleanest, greenest, and safest cities in the world.

Island 2019
Tentokrát už so zreteľom prejsť ostrovom trochu obšírnejšie než len návštevou jeho hlavného mesta, ktoré sa mi kvôli výčinom tunajšieho počasia, ešte dávnejšie na prelome rokov 2016/2017, nepodarilo poriadne preskúmať.

Za hokejom do Toronta
Tento cestopis som bol rozhodnutý nenapísať. Hovoril som si, že nikoho už predsa nebude zaujímať, ako sa po druhý krát trepem do Kanady a ešte aj na ten istý hokejový šampionát. Ale nakoniec som bol k nemu "dokopaný".
