The capital of the Faroe Islands, Tórshavn is located on Streymoy and has a beautiful Old Town area that is a favourite sight to see, with its turf-roofed wooden buildings. This cruise port sits in view of two mountains, separated by the Sandá River, and getting around is relatively easy thanks to Tórshavn's buses offering travel completely free of charge. Hop on a red bus at any time, to get around at no additional cost.
Museums and churches are popular sights to see around Tórshavn, with favourites including Fort Skansin, the Nordic House and the Museum of Natural History. Despite this, many visitors choose to forego visits to any tourist attractions and will instead spend hours in a harbourside café, simply watching the small boats glide backwards and forwards along the waterfront. Should you wish to part with some of your money, shop in the knowledge that your purchases can be made tax-free - simply collect a tax free cheque when making your purchase, and remember to cash it when you're ready to leave Tórshavn.
There are two official currencies in Tórshavn – the Danish Krone and the Faroese Krona. Tórshavn is 1 hours ahead of Greenwich Mean Time (GMT +1).
