The European Union has opened an information centre in the Icelandic capital.
The EU information centre, called Evrópustofan, was opened in Reykjavík for the first time yesterday.
According to RÚV the centre will be open to the public six days a week and its goal is to increase knowledge and understanding of the European Union among Icelanders and to encourage an active debate in society on the advantages and disadvantages of Icelandic membership of the EU.
Visitors to the centre are also able to find information on EU projects and funds and there are many books and leaflets available for those with a more casual interest.
The centre is located at Suðurgata 10, 101 Reykjavík.
There is also a website (in Icelandic): www.evropustofa.is.
