Grasagarðurinn í Laugardal

Whether you believe it or not, there is a Botanical Garden in Reykjavik. It was founded in 1961, with 200 Icelandic species to begin with. Now it contains around 4,000 species, from all over the world. There are ponds and footpaths in the garden, and it is a wonderful experience to walk through on a nice summer day. All the plants are well documented and marked. A visit can therefore be educational as well as fun. You will be surprised by some of the plants surviving there.

Ásmundur Sveinsson Sculpture Museum

The Ásmundur Sveinsson Sculpture Museum itself is a part of the collection, as it is a unique building, a mixture of Egyptian pyramids and Arabic domes, mostly designed and built by the artist himself. He also sought inspiration from the Mediterranean countries; the exterior as well as the interior walls are white and smooth, creating a quiet and elegant frame for his provocative and powerful sculptures. Ásmundur Sveinsson (1893-1982) was one of the pioneers of Icelandic sculpture and, like so many of his generation, he was mainly inspired by Icelandic nature and literature, as well as creating grand masterpieces in praise of the common people. While his first sculptures are fairly realistic, he moved on to abstract work in the last decades of his life, and the museum reflects the changes in his artistic vision.
