Galtastaðir Fram

The old farm of Galtastaðir Fram is a well-preserved farmhouse from the 19th century. Inhabited until 1967 the building exemplifies the sort of housing common in Iceland in previous centuries, heated to some extent by keeping cows under the communal living room or "baðstofa", which was also used for sleeping and handcraft.

Both the interior and exterior of this small but remarkable showcase of former living conditions can be visited by the consent of the proprietor . Galtastaðir Fram has ranked on the preservation list of the National Museum since 1976.

The French made a strong impact in Fáskrúðsfjörður where the road signs are made out in French as well as in Icelandic. Norwegian influence is easily detected in the Eskifjörður and Seydisfjörður architecture. No such roots are to be seen in Egilsstadir which is the latest addition to East Iceland agglomeration, founded in the late forties of the 20th century.
