Dagens citat

"Like many Icelandic towns, Akureyri is surrounded by a North American-style suburban sprawl, but its centre feels European (though to most Icelanders 'Europe' is somewhere culturally distinct). Wooden houses in Lego colours line the harbourfront; the main street is lined with 19th-century shop-fronts with verandas and lacy white-painted carving. Akureryi also has a striking new concert hall, the Hof, more approachable than Reykjavik's astonishing Harpa."
