What European island is home to the world’s oldest parliament?
Iceland comes in at No. 18 on the world’s largest islands list, but it holds one impressive distinction: It is home to the world’s oldest parliament, the Althing. Established in 930 CE, the Althing is also Iceland’s oldest establishment. However, it currently governs one of the most sparsely-populated areas on Earth. Despite its size as Europe’s second-largest island, Iceland is only home to about 370,000 people.
The correct answer is Iceland.
