Fountain
Great Geysir, in Icelandic means burst spring. The Great Geysir is a round pool. The spring in the center of the pool is a "cave". The temperature inside the "cave" is higher than 100 degrees centigrade. Every time the spring erupts, only the sound of the rumbling in the hole can be heard, and the sound gradually becomes louder and louder, and the boiling water also surges until it rushes out of the hole and sprays into the sky, turning from the middle water column to the steam rushing to the sky. And then it turns into drops of water, which is very spectacular.

The Seljalandsfoss Waterfall is 60 meters high and the water flows down the cliff. It is one of Iceland's most popular beautiful waterfalls. There is a kind of momentum that flows down three thousand feet. The Seljalandsfoss Waterfall can pass through the waterfall water. This is one of the photographer's favorite spots. The waterfall is close to us. The sky appears far away from the waterfall. Because of the high popularity of Seljalandsfoss Falls, there are many people coming here. The venue has a fee of 800 ISK.

Built in 1930, the church is a landmark in Reykjavik. It is visible in many parts of the city due to its hills in the city and the height of the building. . On the square in front of the church stands the statue of the explorer Leif Eriksson, to commemorate the 1000th anniversary of the establishment of the Icelandic Parliament in 1930, a gift from the United States to Iceland. The church was designed by the famous Icelandic architect Gudjon Samuelsson, and some people like to call him a normal distribution cathedral. The church began its foundation in 1940 and was basically completed in the late 1960s. It took almost half a century to complete the work because the church was raised by the church and donated by believers. The interior of the church is a pipe organ structure. The main hall is more than 30 meters high and can accommodate 1,200 people. The main tower is 72 meters high and can take the elevator to the top floor overlooking the capital. The shape of the lava left over from the eruption of the Icelandic volcano gave him the inspiration to create his own, using local creative materials, using local architectural materials to design this church with a new landmark and an Icelandic national style.
