Torshavn Travel GuideEdit This The best resource for sights, hotels, restaurants, bars, what to do and see
Torshavn, the capital of the Færoes, is located in the largest island, Streymoy. It could be described as a rural city, since its total area is large but much of it is occupied by green spaces.
The old part, Tinganes, is very spectacular and contains public buildings, such as the Prime Minister's office close to some very old turf roofed houses that are still inhabited.
Torshavn is a major port and the only place in the islands connected to other countries by ferry.
