Back to the #northern#capital of Iceland, #Akureyri#City . After a magnificent bath at #Mývatn#Nature#Baths . just a few walk arounds before I catch up a domestic plane back to Reykjavik city.
Akureyri has a robust cultural scene, with several bars and reputable restaurants (such as Greifinn , Bautinn , RUB 23 Steak/Sushi , "Kung Fu sushi bar" and "Götubarinn"). The Icelandic folk dance ensemble "Vefarinn" comes from Akureyri. Folk culture in general is more prevalent in Akureyri than in Reykjavík.
Sites that have been cited as areas of interest include various #museums , #churches , and the #Botanical#Gardens . Local museums .The most northerly 18 hole golf course in the world is in the town. The Náttúrufræðistofnun Norðurlands (Nature Museum) was opened in 1957 and is in the grounds of the Akureyri Botanical Garden. The Botanical Gardens ( #Lystigarður#Akureyrar ) are located in #Spítalavegur . Large churches include the #Akureyrarkirkja (The church of Akureyri) and #Glerárkirkja (The church of Glerá). Sundlaug Akureyrar is a swimming pool in Akureyri.
New residential and commercial growth has required an extension of electricity and water distribution as well as new water drilling. Much of the town is heated geothermally.
Akureyri is the second most populous #town in Iceland after the Reykjavik Capital Area in the south.
There is a contiguous open area around Akureyri where the biosphere and landscape are extremely diverse , and vegetation in many places is especially lush .
