Centrum and Borg

Centrum is a new hotel (2005) in the heart of Reykjavík, located on Aðalstræti, the oldest street in town. Its buildings are modeled after a style prevalent here around 1900. Viking ruins discovered during its construction are now featured in a museum housed in the basement. A very short stroll brings us to Borg, the city’s iconic hotel overlooking the central square Austurvöllur. It was built in 1930 in the Art Deco style.

These photographs were taken around midnight in summer.
