About Torshavn (Faroe Islands)

Though best known for its Viking history, Torshavn -- the capital city of the Faroe Islands -- is an interesting city with lots of opportunities for cultural exploration and active excursions. Hiking and sailing are popular diversions here, but there are also several attractions for less adventurous travelers, including Torshavn Cathedral and the Nordic House cultural center.
