Reykjavík Capital Area

The Reykjavík Capital Area is the country's largest and most populated city and currently home to 203.594 people, that's two-thirds of the entire Icelandic population!

Although it's one of the smallest capital cities in the world, it's still big enough to fit in seven super-sized districts, with Reykjavík as the largest having a population of 118.814. Each district has its own elected council that governs the community and is responsible for the execution of legally determined projects. The City of Reykjavík is governed by 15 members sitting on the Reykjavík City Council. The Mayor is the general manager of the city and has the highest rank of public office which is currently occupied by our very own Jón Gnarr, who was elected Mayor on June 15 2010.
