The Faroese landstri (government) have historically been located in Tinganes, which is a district of Tórshavn. In Faroese, the name translates to “parliament jetty” or “parliament point.”

When Norwegian colonists built their Ting (parliament) there in 825, the parliament convened there for the first time during the Viking era. Along with Tynwald hill on the Isle of Man and ingvellir in Iceland, it is one of the oldest legislative gathering locations in the world. Although the Lgting has subsequently relocated to the city’s north, this is still where the home-rule government is located.


Between Eysturoy and Kunoy in the Faroe Islands of Denmark’s northeast is the island of Kalsoy. In contrast to the parallel island to the east, Kunoy, whose name means lady island, the name of this island signifies man island.

During the filming of the 25th James Bond film No Time to Die, the northernmost region of Kalsoy and its surroundings served as a stand-in for the Kuril Islands in eastern Russia. The villain’s hideout is on the island where a port and missile silos were digitally built for the movie, which was released in 2021.

Kalsoy, like Svnoy, is a rather remote island because there isn’t a bridge, tunnel, or causeway connecting it to the mainland.


The Mulafossur Waterfall is unquestionably the most well-known landmark in the Faroe Islands. On Vagar island, the picture-perfect Mulafossur lies tucked away from the visitors in the remote settlement of Gásadalur, just 11 kilometres (7 miles) from Vagar Airport.

Although the lighthouse itself is ordinary, the setting of it situated atop a tall rock is magnificent.
