Reykjavik offers an interesting mix of cosmopolitan culture and local village roots. A beautiful salmon river runs through the city limits, and so do fine parks and even wild outdoor areas. But against this backdrop of nature, Reykjavik has a packed program of familiar city joys too: art museums, several theaters, an opera house, a symphony orchestra and concerts/live music spanning the whole spectrum of age and taste. One must for all visitors is dining out on Icelandic specialties, including delicious seafood. Reykjavik is one of Europe's hottest nightspots, where the action on the friendly pub and nightlife scene lasts right through the night.
