Tórshavn0 viewsTórshavn is the world's smallest capital, beautifully situated at the foot of the surrounding mountains with a panoramic view of the island of Nólsoy. The town was founded in 825 AD and named after the Nordic god Thor. When you enter the old part of town, Reyn and Tinganes, you will find your­self in a con­fusion of lanes and narrow passages, steps and rocks and tiny black-tarred houses with white windows and green turfed roofs. You may think that you have lost your way onto the set of an historical film or into a museum, but what you see is in fact a genuine town dating from the Middle Ages and still alive with hens and children and all the buzz of ordinary life. This area is unique not only in the Faroes but in the world. Continue by bus to the newer part of town. The tour ends with lunch. After the tour it is possible, on your own, to visit the National Museum of the Faroe Islands.May 24, 2015

Faroes ewes weigh around 45 pounds (20 kg) at maturity, and rams are 45–90 pounds (20–40 kg). Rams are horned and ewes are usually polled, and the breed occurs naturally in many different colors. Faroes tend to have very little flocking instinct, and will range freely in small groups in pastureland. They are most closely related to the Old Norwegian and Icelandic breedsMay 15, 2015
