Europe’s first Parliament

The word Thingvelier (spelt Þingvellir in Icelandic) was derived from the Icelandic words – “Ping” meaning parliament and "velir" meaning plans. It was originally the base of Europe’s first Parliament. Referred to as Alpingi, this institution was a place where ideas were discussed, disputes settled and where criminals were convicted.
