In one of the more popular bars in Reykjavík called Húrra, there is a legend about a ghost that is haunting the pub. It is often believed it is the ghost of a young man that was lost at sea. 

One of the most haunted places in Iceland is a pub in Reykjavík called Húrra. It is a very popular bar and concert venue with live music and if we are to believe the local legends, it is a haunted pub as well. 

It is not the only supposed haunted pub in Reykjavik, that has a population around 130 000 people and perhaps even more ghosts. It is believed to be one of the first permanent settlements from the late 800s, and has a long viking and coastal history. 

The place where Húrra Pub is built is where the city of Reykjavík’s former shoreline hit and if you go down to the basement of the building you can still see some of the city’s original foundation wall from old times. 

The staff that works there claims to have spotted strange shadows on the walls, heard noises after closing time when no one was supposed to be there and felt like they had someone following them, although they were completely alone in the pub. They also tell about a wave of being nauseous in the staircase. 

Who can this ghost be? According to some, it is often believed to be a young man who was lost at sea.
