Reykjavik: Skólavörðustígur

Skólavörðustígur Street
Reykjavik, Iceland
June 28, 2012

This street is one of the 'main drags' in Reykjavik. It features many art galleries and assorted shops as well as some neat cafes and restaurants.

It begins at Laugavegur, another main street and ends at the famous Hallgrímskirkja church, with its distinct and imposing concrete structure.
The colours on this street are fairly typical of what you see in Reykjavik. Many buildings are clad in coloured metal sheeting, similar to what Canadians would normally see used on a barn roof. Concrete is also a common building material, no doubt due to its resilience to the harsh Icelandic winters.
