Tórshavn, set amid the clear waters of the North Atlantic, is one of the world’s smallest capitals, and one of the most pleasant cities in the world. What Tórshavn lacks in size, it more than makes up for by the warmth of its welcome!
The city has 20.000 inhabitants and is situated on the island of Streymoy, which is the largest island in the Faroes located centrally in the archipelago. This makes the port ideal for excursions to all corners of the Faroes. The history of Tórshavn dates back more than one thousand years. Much of the earliest historical timber-built houses in Tórshavn date back to the 15-16th century.
These buildings have survived intact, and are today an attractive area, known as Tinganes.
