About Domkirkjan, Reykjavik

Domkirkjan holds a significant importance in shaping Icelandic history. Interestingly the church has always been on the site since 1200 AD only to have taken its present form in 1796. This the very place where Iceland’s independence was officially endorsed and the members of cabinet still gather for several sessions.

The first view at the church will fill you with serenity, a fairly basic building amongst the perfectly manicured green lawn. On entering the church one will experience the same sense of calmness around. The church also houses a baptismal font donated by famous sculptor Bertel Thorvaldsen.

Domkirkjan, Reykjavik Reviews

  • Lovely quaint church, with a nice organ and acoustic, and a very enjoyable Sunday morning service. Their choir was small, but committed, and the organist introduced the hymns with creative preludes, making the service flow almost seamlessly between the priest's intoned passages and congregational entries. People were very kind, in general.

  • In The distance is a a Cathedral in Reykjavík, Iceland, that is seat of the Bishop of Iceland and mother church of the Evangelical Lutheran Church of Iceland, as well as the parish church of the old city centre and environs. We were on a short stopover in Iceland.

  • Quaint little cathedral near the Parliament House

  • Very nice church and they had a Bach music program we stumbled upon that was delightful. He is doing it now over the next two years.

  • Had some interesting pictures of consecrated water. Too much concrete in the structure
