Quick access to information
Tórshavn Municipality places great emphasis on ensuring that its residents can easily find out what is happening in the municipality. The Faroes are more and more a part of the larger world and many foreigners arrive on our shores, either on business or as tourists, or to settle down and live in the Faroes. Therefore, Tórshavn Municipality wishes to offer those from afar a guiding and helping hand. Thus, a part of this website is offered in English, Russian and Polish.
(literally, “quick counter”) is the dedicated services desk designed especially to provide fast and efficient service to all residents in the Municipality. If you have any questions, you are welcome to contact the office. It is located in the building across from the town hall in the city centre courtyard known as Vaglið.
