Cities in ICELAND
In Iceland is freedom of religion. The National Church of Iceland, the Evangelical Lutheran Church or the People's Church, to which the majority of the population belongs, is the state church; the country is a diocese. Most Icelanders are not regular churchgoers.

In addition to the state church, there are a dozen small Protestant branches. 4% of the population is Roman Catholic, headed by a Dutch bishop. It is special that a number of Icelanders still adhere to the belief in old Norse gods.
