  • Exciting and informative displays a piece of war but also how far back in the times of pirates and plunder from alien southern countries tried to defend himself.

  • 離市中心不遠,就在車站的隔離,小山丘上有個小燈塔,同時可以看到接近整個市區,也可望著大海看日出,在法羅群島天氣千變萬化,建議在附近又好天的話,一定要上去看看。  more »
  • The lighthouse can be seen already on arrival at the central bus station. The place is popular and can be taken fotografirujushhimi. Seemed lodges under the MOSS next to him even more likable.

  • City of dimwits troglodytes, that when they see a group of whales at sea, they stop working, they bring them to shore and get killed, for the pure pleasure of it! I forgot, they leave even proud!!!
