The Faroe Islands are an archipelago of 18 mountainous islands between the North Atlantic and the Norwegian Sea, between Scotland and Iceland. The nearest neighbors are the small islands in the north and west of Scotland. The coordinates of the Faroe Islands are 62 ° 00'N 06 ° 47'W. The archipelago and the rock, 882 meters above sea level, is the highest peak of Slættaratindur. Most coastal areas are cliffs, and many locations are between 3 and 400 meters above sea level, providing a good nesting opportunity for a large number of seabirds. The highest cliff, Enniberg, rises about 700 meters directly over the ocean. The Faroes are the cause of volcanoes and are dominated by clayey basalt lava, which was part of the Great Surin Plateau during the Palaeogene period.

Culture Faroe Islands

The Faroes are known for their majestic architecture. The sun is shining, the vegetation is scarce and the fog is filling up over the islands and oceans. For centuries they have not resorted to bloody wars and defended their right to self-existence. They strive to develop their own culture and the culture of a country with a long history in Scandinavia. In recent decades, there has been a tendency in the archipelago to seek isolation in the development of national culture.
