Hólavallagarður is an old cemetery in Reykjavík, dating from 1838.
It must be one of the most heavily forested parts of the city, with birch trees planted between just about every grave. There are photos in the cemetery which show how it was developed in an area of wide open fields, which is hard to imagine as it is completely hemmed in now.
I have seen photos taken in the warmer months where the trees are all in bloom and it’s a very lush, green place that you wouldn’t think was in the middle of Reykjavík. Here you see it looking a little different, and devoid of visitors on a December day.
