Free Friday: Visit Hallgrímskirkja in Iceland

A no fee thing to do in places I visited.

This unique building in Reykjavik is a Lutheran parish church. Visitors come intrigued by its unusual architecture.
Its style is expressionist architecture characterized by use of novel materials, formal innovations, and very unusual massing. Hallgrímskirkja was designed to resemble basalt lava flows of Iceland.
Even its pipe organ reflects the church’s architecture style and design.
Some visitors choose togo up the church tower for a fee to learn more about the priest who inspired the construction of Hallgrímskirkja and to get a breathtaking 360-degree view of Reykjavik.
