Public restrooms in Thingvellir National Park enjoy an epic view while sitting on top of the Mid-Atlantic Ridge where the North American and Euroasian tectonic plates meet and are drifting apart. In the year 930 Thingvellir was the site of the first Icelandic Parliament, considered to be the earliest incarnation of democracy. Although the majority of Iceland is rugged and uninhabited, natural areas that serve as tourist destinations (both for visitors and Icelanders) seem to have every amenity.
