The Nordic House, Torshavn

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.

  • Interesting visit for Scandinavians, very child friendly. We missed concerts but had a good buffet at the restaurant there. Special architecture with gras on the roof. Must visit for Icelanders since ...  more »
  • The building and surroundings are very nice but unless there is an event it is a rather dead place to visit.  more »

  • Had a photo gallery at the moment, but seems to arrange all sorts of stuff. Beautiful inside, free, and nice staff. Dunno about the shows and café though.
  • Nice architecture, fine building with good facilities and delicious cake
  • A trendy cultural nordic house with a small café and free WiFi. Events, plays and concerts can take place here according to schedules, so keep an eye on it.
  • Simply a nice hotel in front of the traditional harbor of the Faroese capital.
  • Nice cultural space. Not too much going on when I visited but presumably it's used lots by the locals.
