Iceland – the land of mysteries and wonders: a quiz (part 1)

As you probably know, Iceland came onto the tourist radars because of great success in world football. Then this beautiful country was actively visited by many tourists, including celebrities -Justin Bieber and others. Icelandic landscapes have also appeared in various Hollywood films (The Secret Life of Walter Mitty, Prometheus, Oblivion, etc.).
