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.
