Torshavn

The Faroes, a collection of 18 islands sandwiched by the North Atlantic Ocean and Norwegian Sea, are a rugged destination filled with towering mountains and windswept harbor cities. Torshavn, capital of this Danish territory, was named for the Norse god of thunder and lightning; the city seems as stalwart as its patron deity, having stood along the sea since the 10th century.

A history dating to early Viking occupations make museums a top draw for Torshavn. The cultural attractions of the Nordic House, including its revolving exhibits dedicated to local folklore, are especially popular. A visit to the Faroes’ parliamentary building, the territory’s center of government since 900 A.D., is another must-see for history buffs. Other visitors are content to wander through town, taking snapshots of its iconic homes -- sod roofs and brightly colored exteriors set against the verdant grasslands of the Faroes make for postcard-perfect holiday photos.
