The Nordic House, Torshavn

4.1
Must see · Landmark · Tourist Spot
Admire the Scandinavian architecture at The Nordic House, considered one of the most beautiful buildings in the Nordic region. With a mission to promote the local history and culture, the institution was established in 1983 under the supervision of the Nordic Council of Ministers. Designed by architect Ola Steen, the deep green building resembles a dragon on the outside, matching the reptilian design of the spacious interior hall. Sit back at the onsite cafe and soak in the playful atmosphere of the architectural elements, whose materials were sourced almost exclusively from the Faroe Islands.
