Hófði House, the seat of International meetings in Reykjavík

Posted on February 22, 2009 by

The Hófði House is a wooden building that stands on the coastline and where in 1986 occurred the historical meeting between Reagan and Gorbaciov that put an end to the Cold War.

On this villa lays a superstition: some people believe that the ghost of a woman inhabits the house and enjoys closing the curtains. For this reason, all the curtains have been removed and the house appears with no screening, besides the windows on the North side, those of the room where the two Presidents met. Today the building is used for official happenings, such as political or civil events.
