Torshavn Guide

The city of Torshavn is located in the Faroe Islands, on the east coast of Streymoy, and is surrounded by mountains to the north west (Husareyn) and to the south west (Kirkjuboreyn). The city is laid out in its resplendent glory before you as you enter the harbour as it has been built on a hillside and can trace its history back to Viking times. The wooden buildings that can be seen, that are painted red and have turf roots, are the home to the Faroe's Government and Prime Minister. They are located on the same spot the first settlers held their yearly ting, or parliament. Although the exact date is not known, the town’s history can be traced back to around 900 AD when the first Viking settlers arrived on the island by longboat from Norway.

The harbour is served by the Smyril Line international ferry service to Denmark and Iceland. The harbour is also used by domestic ferry services of Strandfaraskip Landsins within the Faroe Islands, chiefly on the route to Tvoroyri.
