After breakfast, we suggest exploring Tórshavn. At the far end of the marina is the shop Østrøm where you can look at and maybe even buy some of the modern Faroese art and handicrafts. Other interesting shops to visit in the city center are Tutl that sells Faroese music, Guðrun & Guðrun who sell knitwear in the latest Faroese fashion, Marjun Heimá that has specialised in producing the Faroese national costume and you can see a very nice display of these in the shop and Ullvøruhúsið. On the walk around town, you will pass by the quaint old bookshop, which is definitely worth a visit.
Have lunch at one of the many good cafes / restaurants.
If you need a break from shopping, we suggest a visit to the Nordic House, a Scandinavian culture centre, or the Art Museum and Gallery. Here you can see a wide range of Faroese art, showing how the nature and landscape has been dominant as a motif throughout the history of Faroese art.
