One evening in Reykjavik we visited Hallgrímskirkja, a Lutheran parish church and a gorgeous example of modern Scandinavian architecture. 

The evening light coming through the tall windows... 

...and the stunning organ were highlights.

I also liked the modular pews (the organ was at the back of the sanctuary and I'm sure they have great concerts there). 

Out front is a statue of Leif Ericsson (I somehow always think of him as a mainland Scandinavian, rather than an Icelander).
