While it was raining we visited the Nordic House and assisted to a fantastic concert of Kata, a Faroe group of five women singing traditional songs. The concert was great and the building is a fine piece of modern architecture.

Having just attended a three-days conference held in this beautiful place I have to say it would be nice if we had more places like this one all over Europe. Their eco-friendly approach, the way the whole place is built, furnished and equipped is just...More
