Kaup Tun or Buying Town in english

This area, which is called Kaup Tun, is probably most known and traveled to because of Ikea. Because of this Ikea’s location in Iceland, it has some very odd and unusual surroundings. I find that it often looks like a theme park which was created just to entertain Ikea’s customers. This theme park happens to be Icelandic themed. There is not an erupting volcano at the entrance of Ikea, but maybe there should be.

  1. The reason I love this so much is how little of Ikea you need to get the idea.

  2. Hey Julia–simply love these pix! Particularly the ones with the houses in context to what “nature” is around them. Lovely pix!
