Nearly 70% of the country’s citizens are affiliated with the State Church which is the Evangelical Lutheran Church of Iceland. Yet in 1899, a community of 600 members broke away to establish the Free Church in Reykjavík. Four years later, Fríkirkjan í Reykjavík built this place of worship in city center. Since then, it has been expanded in 1905 and 1924. This landmark with a green roof and spire are especially handsome at sunset reflecting along the eastern edge of Lake Tjörnin.
