One of the things that average visitors fail to appreciate during their stay in Iceland is the urban and industrial element present in the country. The landscape and the charming little houses are of course what sets Iceland apart from most other places, while urban decay is widespread everywhere. However, the dejected and austere beauty of some areas–in the Capital, for instance–also retains a fascinating side for those that are eager to see it. Iceland residents seem to have a good understanding and also a practical use for it, if it’s true that they opened museums and other cultural and recreational venues that are now source of enjoyment for the community in abandoned buildings hosting in their former days prisons, warehouses, factories and more.
