Set in reasonably large grounds sits the Dom. It is a good looking structure and the inside of the church is not extravagantly decorated. It is still a practicing church. Worth a visit.

It's a small cathedral but worth to stop by for a few minutes to look at inside. There's also piano performance every Tuesday night.

The interior of this church is modern. It does not have a dull atmosphere inside. It does not have traditional motives or pictures. Outside is also nice. You will like taking pictures there.

This lovely classical style church is a beautiful structure with clean, well-cared-for features. It is one of my favourite buildings in Reykjavik.
