vesturbær

It holds the role of being one of Reykjavik's first suburbs but is today a mixture of downtown residency and local businesses. An inspiration to litterateur and poetry, a source of endless adventures and a home of Iceland's most successful soccer team, KR, Vesturbærinn is an authentic locality. You might be in luck to run into some of the famous residents, the world known singer Björk or the first female president of Iceland, Vígdís Finnbogadottir. As you cross over to the other side, you will find a path alongside the water where you can look over the bay to Bessastaðir, the residency of the president of Iceland.
