Akureyri, Iceland: Akureyri Church

It's tough to miss the main church in the cities of Iceland. (Well, there are only two "cities.") They are big, impressive, and on a big hill.

Such is the case in Akureyri, located on the north shore of Iceland. The Akureyri Church is Lutheran, the official church of the country. It was completed in 1940 and features a 3,200-pipe organ and a central window that once was used in England.

And as you may have guessed, be prepared to go up several steps if you come to see it from downtown Akureyri.
