Skólavörðustígur is The Art, Cafts and gourmet Street of Reykjavík, Iceland. Here you can find handmade Icelandic desing chlothing, jewelrys, arts, cafes, resturants and gourmet shops.
The picture above was taken in 1877 from the Skólavarða, a stone observation tower on Skólavörðuholt. It was later tom down. On this old photograph, the view is down Skólavörðustígur. In the background are the islands Hólmur, Akurey and Örfirisey, and the Örfirisey jetty. One also sees the Dutch windmill which stood at Bankastraeti near the bottom of Skólavörðustígur.
