Hallgrímskirkja (church of Hallgrimur) took 41 years to build. Commissioned in 1937, construction began in 1945 and was completed in 1986.

And guess what?! It's a Lutheran church! probably the fanciest Lutheran church I've ever seen.

When I have more time, I will give you a briefing on the history of religion in Iceland. Haha, it is indeed pretty brief, but quite fascinating.
