Parliament House houses the Icelandic legislature. It is small, and has a lovely, though tiny, garden behind the building.

I enjoyed the Icelandic Parliament House. It is modest in size, an attractive old building with a modern addition. It is worth your time to walk around and especially to visit the gardens around back as you contemplate the historic importance of the Icelandic Parliament...More
