Austurvöllur by day and night

Austurvöllur is the name of the square in front of the parliament house and the cathedral. Also located on the square are Hótel Borg, one of the city's oldest and most respected hotels, and the nightclub Nasa, along with several pubs, cafés and restaurants. 

Here you can see it in the day-time, with the statue of national hero Jón Sigurðsson to the left:


At this time of the year the trees in Austurvöllur twinkle with fairy lights:
