Hallgrímskirkja church is Reykjavík’s main landmark and is visible throughout the entire city. This 244 ft tall masterpiece’s design was inspired by Iceland’s landscape, but focuses on features from Svartifoss Waterfall and Hálsanefshellir Cave. Directly in front of the church, there is a statue of Leifur Eiríksson, who was the first European to discover America. The church is free to enter, but admission to the tower is $9 / 1000 ISK. The tower provides a view over Reykjavík, but may not be worth the trip to the top.
