Eiríksgata / Frakkastígur
Statue of Leif Eriksson
SON OF ICELAND
OF AMERICA TO
ON THE ONE
OF THE ALTHING
A monument based on this one is on Keflavik airport.
View from the tower of the Hallgrímskirkja. The statue of Leif Eriksson is at the bottom. The street from the church to the west is the Skólavörðustígur. Leif is looking through this street to the west, to the Ocean and Greenland.
The grey roofed building on the corner of the Skólavörðustígur is the Hótel Leifur Eiríksson.
From 9 to 12 June 2003 I stayed in this hotel. The main photo of the statue is made from the balcony of the hotel.
