The Husavik Church, an iconic local building, is solemn and solemn. Very grand.
Near the port of Husavik, Husavik is really a very, very small town. Don’t worry about missing it at all. It’s especially good to take pictures on sunny days, and there are snow-capped mountains in the distance, even in June.
.Húsavík Church Húsavíkurkirkja is a landmark building of Húsavík. Built in 1907, the wooden church with a cross-shaped structure was designed by architect RögnvaldurÓlafsson. Rögnvaldur was the first Icelander to study architecture. All wood used is from Norway. It was not until 1924 that the interior of the church was whitewashed, and the painter Freymóður Jóhannsson carried out the interior. The visual sense of fairy tales is a strong feature of the Swiss style, which was developed in Norway in the second half of the 19th century and originated in Switzerland. The construction of the Húsavík Church took only one year. The main door faces west and the other door faces south in the east wing. There is a cross on each wing and a circle around it, symbolizing eternity. The painter SveinnÞórarinsson from Kílakot painted the altarpiece of the church from 1930-1931. The decoration of the altar is outstanding in many ways. Many people think that the painter's background landscape is familiar with the Icelandic environment, for example, the mountains are from Öxarfjörður and the lava flows are from Kelduhverfi. In addition to serving as a chapel, the church has long been used as a concert hall, where musicians from Iceland and abroad perform. The church is estimated to hold 450 people, but when the church was built, the population of Husavik was only about 500 people. .Standard photo The standard photo is to find the sign at the same angle as the only colored sign with whale tail in the city and click back. ..
