A peaceful capital

The capital city of Iceland is probably the cleanest in the world. In addition, it can be explained quite well for the most peaceful. The reason is that the country has no army. The police carries a weapon. All it brings back the feeling of affection in every visitor before one knows something about the culture, night life and attractions.
