The HallgrÝmskirkja is a Lutheran (Church of Iceland) parish church in ReykjavÝk,Iceland. At 74.5 metres (244 ft), it is the largest church in Iceland and the sixth tallest architectural structure in Iceland

Reykjavik's latitude at 64░08' N makes it the world's northernmost capital of a sovereign state. It is located in southwestern Iceland, on the southern shore of Faxaflˇi Bay. With a population of around 120,000 (and over 200,000 in the Greater ReykjavÝk Area) it is the heart of Iceland's economic and governmental activity.

ReykjavÝk is believed to be the location of the first permanent settlement in Iceland, which Ingˇlfur Arnarson is said to have established around 870. Until the 18th century, there was no urban development in the city location. The city was founded in 1786 as an official trading town and grew steadily over the next decades, as it transformed into a regional and later national centre of commerce, population and governmental activities.
