Reykjavik Coat of ArmsSatellite view is showing Reykjavik, a seaport and the national capital of Iceland, the volcanic island between Greenland and Norway, north west of the UK. It is the northernmost capital city of a sovereign nation in the world.

Reykjavik is located in southwestern Iceland, on the southern shore of Faxaflói Bay.

The site of what is today Reykjavik was settled since the medieval times, but there was no urban development until the end of the 18th century. In the 1750s several buildings were constructed to house the local wool manufacturing, which was Reykjavik's most important employer for a few decades.

Today the city's population in the capital area is about 200,000 people, about 60% of Iceland's total population of 300,000.
Spoken language is Icelandic.

The city is governed by the elected Reykjavik City Council. The city is home to the University of Iceland, the Reykjavik University and the Iceland Academy of the Arts.
Some attractions of the city are: Laugavegur, the main shopping street, the exhibition space of the Safnahúsið (Culture House), the National Museum of Iceland and the Blue Lagoon, a geothermal spa located near Reykjavik.
