1. Hressingarskßlinn (WOW Airlines). We wonĺt delve too deeply into the long story here; but the house was imported from Sweden and has stood at its current location since 1805 – putting it among the most venerable buildings in the whole city. The ĹSvenskaĺ house, as it was long nicknamed, housed a succession of important people like sheriffs and the like, before eventually being bought by the government, given to a youth organisation and then swapped with a baker. The baker then moved his place of refreshment, Hressingarskßlinn (quite separate from his actual bakery) into the house – even bringing in “a foreign man” to install a coffee machine the likes of which were all the rage in “international coffee houses” and had never been seen in Iceland before.
