More About Torshavn

Tórshavn is one of the world’s smallest capitals, although it’s home to over a third of the Faroese population. Behind the harbour and a charming if tiny old-town core lies a compact commercial centre that comes merrily to life on summer weekend nights.

Behind this, the town’s newer housing and anonymous light-industrial warehouses sweep up towards an inspiringly barren ring of moorland hills. First came the Viking "Ting" followed by a market, later a thriving town, and now we are the smallest capital city in the world, and still growing.

The city was founded in the 10th century and named after Thor, the god of thunder and lightning in Norse mythology. In the early history of the Faroes Tórshavn became the political center of the Faroes and still is today.

Torshaven Ferry Port

The first settlers established their own parliament called "ting" around 800. The main thing was established on Tinganes in Tórshavn and local things where established in different parts of the islands. Tinganes drew people to trade and to attend court meetings etc. Currently the city has a population of around 20,000.

Torshavn has plenty to offer to its tourists as it is the cultural centre of the islands. Its beautiful Nordic House that was opened in 1983 is one of its kind for many cultural events of the Faroese and the Nordic Countries.
