The Faroe Islands, also known as the Faroe Islands, are an autonomous region within the Kingdom of Denmark. This archipelago is located in the North Atlantic Ocean, about halfway between Scotland and Iceland. The archipelago consists of 18 major islands, the largest of which is Streymoy, where the capital city Tórshavn is located. The landscape of the Faroe Islands is rugged and mountainous, characterized by steep cliffs rising from the sea, green valleys and countless fjords. Picturesque villages with colorful houses adorn the landscape and add to the charm of these remote islands.

Faroese culture is rich in traditions, including folk music, dance and arts and crafts. Sheep farming and fishing play a central role in daily life and the economy.

Foreign affairs and defense are managed by Denmark. Although there are movements for full independence, there is no consensus yet on leaving the Kingdom of Denmark.
