Geirastaðakirkja

The pretty little turf church Geirastaðakirkja is situated on the grounds of farm of Litli Bakki. The construction is a recent hypothetical remake of a church that had been built in the neighborhood a thousand years ago, the ruins of which were unearthed during the excavation.

Austurland

Towns & Villages

Each town in Austurland has its own characteristics. In some of the coastal villages t, the influence of North European neighbors obvious to everyone. 

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.
