Faroe Islands

wtorek, 6 maja 2014

The Faroe Islands is an archipelago and autonomous country within the Kingdom of Denmark, situated between the Norwegian Sea and the North Atlantic Ocean, approximately halfway between Norway and Iceland, at about 320 kilometres (200 mi) north-north-west of mainland Scotland.

Did you know that:
1. There are 77 nationalities living in the Faroe Islands – and that’s from a total population of only 48,000 – a real cultural melting pot!
2. The Faroe Islands are one of very few countries in Europe to have no McDonalds outlets.
3. There is no prison on the Faroe Islands. Long-term prisoners get sent off to Denmark.
4. The Faroese language, spoken by all Faroese people, is most similar to Icelandic and the now extinct Old Norse language.
5. Fishing industry is the single most important industry providing more than 97% of the total exports. Tourism is the second largest industry.
6. On the islands, you are never more than 5 kilometers (3 miles) from the ocean.
