Thingvellir National Park
Thingvellir is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and the national shrine of Iceland which holds the oldest existing parliament in the world where the first assembly in 930 AD was convened and continued to take place until the 1798. Thus, most of the major events in history of Iceland have taken place in this national park. Together with its historical significance, Thingvellir has exceptional geology and landscape features.
