The old blacksmith’s shed´- "Smidjan í Lítluvík", near Vágbotnur dates back to the 1870s and is now used as a showcase gallery for Faroese as well as international arts and crafts.

Tinganes is the historical core of the country’s capital. Dividing two harbours, this flat rocky outcrop is dominated by delightfully muddled turf-roofed structures that, quite unassumingly, are home to the Faroese Home Rule government (Føroya Landssýri). Tinganes is said to be one of the oldest, if not the oldest, parliamentary meeting places in the world, along with Tynwald Hill in the Isle of Man and Þingvellir in Iceland. It was here, in around year 900, that the Viking parliament first began meeting every summer to discuss matters of national importance. Visitors are free to wander at will – who knows, you might even catch the Prime Minister on his way to lunch!
