After hearing and reading all about the impressive history of the world's oldest parliament in Þingvellir, I was somehow expecting the Alþingi to have a "wow" effect.
Well, it doesn't.
First of all, it's mostly closed to the public (with the exception of a small garden).
Secondly, it does not stand out as a unique nor distinguished building. It's just a dark brick building, dating back to 1881.
Having said that, you're bound to pass by it during your walk in downtown Reykjavik, so you might as well know where the Icelandic parliament resides.
