Visit one of the country's most important religious sites and a symbol of Icelandic statehood at Domkirkjan. The cathedral serves as the seat of the Bishop of Iceland and the center of the Church of Iceland. Dating back to the late 18th century, when the city of Reykjavik was founded, the building hosts the ceremonial parliament openings and presidential inaugurations in addition to acting as an important place of worship for citizens and visitors. Listen to the organs and admire the neo-Classical architecture and neo-Baroque decorations. Walk to the altar to see the masterful silver and agate ornaments. Services are held regularly; check the website for a schedule. Make Domkirkjan a part of your Reykjavik vacation plans using our Reykjavik tourist route planner.
