Day 10 - Hallgrímskirkja Church -> Laugavegur: The Main Shopping Street

After dinner, we walked to Hallgrímskirkja Church via Laugavegur: The Main Shopping Street. There were not many people.

Hallgrímskirkja Church - most people will visit this Church in Reykjavík. Afterall, there are not many places of interest in Reykjavík.
Hallgrímskirkja is a Lutheran (Church of Iceland) parish church in Reykjavík, Iceland. At 73 metres (244 ft), it is the largest church in Iceland
and among the tallest structures in Iceland.[1] The church is named after the Icelandic poet and clergyman Hallgrímur Pétursson.
The church has an observation tower. Anyone can take a lift up to the viewing deck and view Reykjavík and the surrounding mountains. Admission fees of S$12 apply.
Admission tickets

The churches in Iceland do not have the usual shape of a church. Their design is very different. This one shaped like an organ

The sanctuary has very high ceiling.

Enroute to hotel. Building along the street

Laugavegur: The Main Shopping Street. Not a very long street though.
No international brands are sold here. All shops, including eateries, carry their local brands.
