A number of people were surprised to see a tent in the traffic island next to Harpa concert hall in the centre of Reykjavik this morning. By noon the tent had gone.
Traffic in that area is very heavy so it’s not the calmest spot to spend the night. When Mbl.is contacted the staff at Harpa they said they couldn’t do anything about the tent as the traffic island does not belong to the building.
The Reykjavik Metropolitan Police, asked about the tent, said that camping is illegal in Reykjavik except in specified camp sites. People are not fined for camping illegally but they are told to leave.
