Life between the fire and ice
Icelanders call their country as a land of fire and ice.People have a lot of names for fire,ice or water in their language.However,they are have learned to live there.
How to live in this country.
Living in this country changed course development.
Native turfy lived in homes that protect them from adverse
weather conditions (rain, cold and wind).These snares
have a very small number of windows, doors,and usually
one on the roof of the thick layer of clay on which
the grass grow.Houses completely merged the country.
Today you can see these houses in different places of Iceland,
as the Museum of Nature.The countryside is very different
than living in the city.-Where you will find the village.
There are only a few such houses or just any farm.Individual
settlements or farming settlements were and still are spaced
a few tens of kilometers.People meet only at some festivals
or churches,which also usually tend to go far enough.
Houses in Iceland are mostly made of wood,
which is mostly imported, as you will not find many trees.
The heating of the earth using geothermal energy.In cities,
most of the population of Iceland in Reykjavik
is just more than half of all people.For example,the second
largest city in Iceland, Akureyri has about 17,000 inhabitants.
Others are much smaller.Even in the capital,dominated
by family houses, so it looks rather like a large village.
The other cities on the island are Sellfoss,Akranes,
Most cities are situated on the coast (the western,southwestern,
eastern and north).Iceland is among the countries where life
expectancy for both men and women the highest in the world.
This is due to lifestyle,clean air and healthy diets.
There is also due to climate and less isolation of disease or virus.
