Fodor's Review

Built in 1880–81, this structure is one of the country's oldest stone buildings. Iceland's Alþingi held its first session in AD 930 and therefore can lay claim to being the oldest representative parliament in the world. You can view the parliament proceedings from the visitor's gallery here. Depending on the urgency of the agenda, any number of Iceland's 63 members of parliament, from five political parties, may be present.
