  • This statue in front of Hallgrimskirkja is one of the most iconic images of Reykjavik. Monumental gift from the United States to Iceland. One of the most photographed objects in Iceland.  more »
  • Didn't realize the statue was in front of the church. Totally underwhelming and if not for people taking selfies would walk by it.  more »
  • Beautifull iceland best experience
  • It was a cool statue as far as that stuff goes. It was a nice present from the US, but the real star of the area is the church behind it and the waffles wagon on the side. Try to catch an organ concert.
