Reykjavik is the capital of Iceland and also the largest city in the country. This city is situated on the southern part of Faxa Bay and consists of coves, islands, straits and peninsulas. The climate in Reykjavik tends to change a lot but it does not go into extremes meaning that summers are mild and winters are cool. The coldest month in the city is January so it is best to go here during spring season when it is sunny.
Iceland's first Nordic settler Ingolfr Arnarson was said to have first stayed in Reykjavik during 870 C.E. No signs of urban development was seen in the city for years not until the city was made into a trading town in 1786 and made it the hub for commerce and government.
