Students have settled in at Glasir – Tórshavn College, a 19,200m2 (206,000ft2) vortex-shaped education center that combines three schools under one roof and celebrates the dramatic Faroese landscape.
Sometimes called the Faeroe Islands, this is an archipelago between the Norwegian Sea and the North Atlantic, about halfway between Norway and Iceland, 320 kilometres (200 miles) north-northwest of Scotland. The islands are an autonomous country within the Kingdom of Denmark. Their area is about 1,400 square kilometres (541 square miles) with a population of 50,030 in April 2017.
The Faroes’ terrain is rugged, and the islands have a subpolar oceanic climate (Cfc): windy, wet, cloudy and cool. Despite this island group’s northerly latitude, temperatures average above freezing throughout the year because of the Gulf Stream.
The best-known church buildings in the Faroe Islands include Tórshavn Cathedral, Olaf II of Norway’s Church and the Magnus Cathedral in Kirkjubøur; the Vesturkirkjan and the Maria Church, both of which are situated in Tórshavn; the church of Fámjin; the octagonal church in Haldórsvík; Christianskirkjan in Klaksvík.
