If you fancy a pleasant stroll in Reykjavik, there is no better place than Tjornin Pond in the heart of the city. Lined by a stone walkway and colorful houses on the western shore, families gather here to feed the ducks, geese, swans, Arctic terns and other birds found frolicking in the small lake.

During winter the natural pond freezes over and becomes a popular place for skating and ice-hockey. Buildings of note located on Tjornin Pond are Idno Theater which also has a coffee house and Reykjavik City Hall.
