Torshavn, Faroe Islands

There are few capital cities in the world that are smaller, or more full of character, than Torshavn. The city's name translates literally as “Thor's harbor” and confirms the strong Viking heritage.

Enjoy the colorfully painted wooden houses of the old town, some with turfed roofs, alongside modern counterparts such as the Norse House, built with gleaming glass, and also with a grassy top.
