Directions to Eyrarbakki
Eyrarbakki is a small village on the south coast of Iceland which about 150 years ago was one or the main cities in Iceland. That's why it has a lot of historic houses, and when the queen of Denmark painted an altarpiece, she chose to give it to the large wooden church in Eyrarbakki, it being the major city in the area.
There is an interesting folk museum there that documents the history of the town and the country, some restaurants like for instance the Red House, famous for its lobster soup.
Eyrarbakki is also a great place to just park your car, admire the town's storied buildings and walk along the beautiful and dramatic coastline.
