A gorgeous statue of Hafmeyjan – icelandic for mermaid – can be found in Reykjavik’s Hljómskálagarður park, near City Hall. map
The mermaid statue is by icelandic sculptor Nína Sæmundsson. It is a recast from the original mold, as the original 1948 statue was damaged many years ago.
As in many other cultures, there is a myth about a mermaid in Iceland who sits on a rock in the sea and attracts sailors with her song – after which they disappear forever into the depths in her arms.
