At Hringbraut stands BSÍ, the capital’s transport hub. A house that was built almost 60 years ago, in 1965, and has long since become far too small. And maintenance not taken care of. Not quite suitable as the first stop for travelers to Reykjavík from Keflavík Airport. After all, all politicians, no matter which party they belong to, have been making suggestions for improvements for years, because there are endless possibilities at the large plot of BSÍ by one of the capital’s biggest traffic arteries, Hringbraut. But nothing has happened, despite the increase in tourists to and from the country in recent years. Icelandic Times / Land & Saga went down to the Traffic Center, BSÍ, and enjoyed seeing and hearing all the major languages of the world. By and in a house that used to be beautiful but now could really use some renovations.

Never ending traffic at BSÍ

Welcome to Iceland
