Akureyri is the most famous city in Iceland except Reykjavik and is known as the capital of the north. Since leaving Reykjavik, all the sights are endless mountains and wilderness, and the wind and the grass of the cattle and sheep, even people can not see a few. In Akureyi, I saw a long-lost high-rise and crowd, and there was a sense of intimacy. Akureyri is also a famous city of love. Watching the traffic lights here will reveal a lovely love.
This stems from the 2008 financial crisis in Iceland. Akureyri hopes that the city people will not lose their hope for life because of the financial crisis, and launched a "smile with heart" activity, leaving love in shops, traffic lights, doors and windows. Now that the financial crisis has passed, Icelands economy has gradually recovered, but this lovely tradition has indeed been passed down.
