|Reykjavik is the capital
of Iceland, its largest city and, with a latitude at 64°08' N, the
world's most northern national capital. It is located in southwestern Iceland,
on the southern shore of Faxaflói Bay. With a population of more
than 115,000, it is the heart of Iceland's economic and governmental activity.
Reykjavík is believed to be the location of the first permanent
settlement in Iceland, which Ingólfur Arnarson is said to have established
around the year 870. Until the 18th century, there was no urban development
in the city location. The city was founded in 1786 as an official trading
town and grew steadily over the next decades, as it transformed into a
regional and later national center of commerce, population and governmental
activities. Today, Reykjavík is the center of the Greater
Reykjavík Area which, with a population of more than 190,000, is
by far the largest metropolitan area of Iceland. As a highly modernised
capital of one of the most developed countries in the world, its inhabitants
enjoy first-class welfare system and city infrastructure. Its location,
only shortly south of the Arctic Circle, receives only four hours of daylight
per day in the depth of winter, and during the summer the nights are almost
as bright as the days.
