Holavallagardur - Review
Between the years 1838 and 1932 this was Reykjavik’s main cemetery. Many prominent Icelandic historical figures are buried here, chief among them the leader of the country’s independence struggle. GudrunOddsdottir, the first to be buried here, is said to be the graveyard’s guardian soul. It’s a beautiful and tranquil place for a stroll, full of interesting looking tombstones and monuments. It’s not very large, only 7.3 acres, but take your time. If you think it’s pretty as it normally looks, check it out again in wintertime, when the snow padded gravestones, and frosty birch and ash trees give the place a mystical old world atmosphere. It’s even better when lit by lamplight in the evening.

Holavallagardur, Reykjavik Reviews
Beautiful cemetery, like a museum, with expansions giving you a glimpse into the history of the city through the cemetery. Many different sections, and a charming overgrowth of vegetation everywhere.
Quiet relaxing area to visit in the center of Reykjavik
Reykjavík's oldest cemetery
Trafiłem przypadkowo wracając z nad oceanu. Piękny cmentarz w skandynawskim stylu. Wielkie głazy i drzewa rosnące nad grobami.
A voir absolument, un cimetière apaisant, chargé d'histoire et de végétation. Le carré des pêcheurs français morts en mer au large de l'Islande est particulièrement marquant.
