Another super-duper ‘awesome’ mural I saw during my 6 day trip to Reykjavik, Iceland… on Laugavegur Street in the City Centre. In addition to good food & a good craft beer scene, Reykjavik has numerous murals!
One of the many murals I saw in Reykjavik, Iceland last month… not the most artistic mural I’ve seen, but definitely impressive because of its size. If you enjoy looking at murals, then Reykjavik’s a good city just for that reason, but it’s also good for many other reasons (from good local craft beer to craft coffee to well organized tours, etc.).
Picture I took in December, 2012. The “Lion of Belfort” is a must-see for anyone visiting Belfort France. The statue was completed in 1880 (entirely made of red sandstone) by Frederic Auguste Bartholdi, same sculptor that sculpted the Statue of Liberty in New York City. Since I have relatives near Belfort, I’ve gotten to see this masterpiece a few times. You can also climb to the top and see the entire City of Belfort.
