Hallgrímskirkja [wiki] (Icelandic for the Church of Hallgrímur), the tallest building in Iceland, is named after Hallgrímur Pétursson, a 17th century poet and clergyman.

The church’s unusual design (some had likened it to a rude hand gesture) is supposed to represent volcanic columns rising between the steeple tower – a reference to Iceland’s many volcanoes.

The iconic building looks like it belongs in J.R.R. Tolkien’s Lord of the Rings. Indeed, many aspects of Tolkien’s work was inspired by Norse mythologies and many of the fictional names in the book are Norse in origin, although there is no reference that Hallgrímskirkja served as a model any of the towers in the book.

  1. I hit the cancer sticks for most of my life and quitting was literally impossible. I tried all of the quitting products but none did any good. Then I heard about the smokeless cigarette. The smokeless cigarette. The smokeless cigarette uses a nicotine liquid that holds just nicotine. No smelly smoke at all. They have completely saved my life.
