The Literary Landscape

Landslag upp úr bók

Do you want to take a literary journey around the country? Wander through the world of poetry on the streets of Reykjavik? Immerse yourself in the fictional worlds created by our country’s greatest authors?

The Reykjavik City Library employs a diverse group of people — we are for example accomplished cartographers! Íslandskort bókmenntanna (“Literary Map of Iceland”) shows settings and influential places from the most well-known Icelandic novels and children’s books. Another map, Ljóðakort Reykjavíkur (“The Reykjavik Poetry Map”), guides people through the poetic world of the city. 

Have a good trip!
