The Althing, the National Parliament of Iceland, was established at Pingvellir in 930, and held its sessions there until 1798. Pingvellir National Park was founded in 1930, marking the one-thousandth anniversary of the Althing. It was later expanded to protect natural phenomena in the surrounding area, and became a World Heritage Site in 2004.
