The Nordic House, Torshavn

4.1
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.

  • Cultural house built in open Scandinavian style, laid out over several levels, yet suitable for wheelchair users by large ramps. Nice staff, a small cafe offers cakes and small meals. Costs no admission for ordinary visitors. You can sit there in peace and enjoy the magnificent view over the city of Torshavn.

  • A really wonderful space with a good cafe. However when we visited there was nothing going on in it.
  • Great cultural center in Torshavn. Saw an interesting art exhibit on water. There was a free concert too.
