I removed the Population Progression section, since it showed the population of the Municipality of Tórshavn, and not the Town of Tórshavn. Mulder1982 17:07, 23 October 2006 (UTC)

Twinnings[edit]

I can't find any hint on the official homepage of Tórshavn, that any of the mentioned cities in the article where twinnings of Tórshavn. Actually, they are Reykjavík and Nuuk, plus Aberdeen and Stavanger as cooperation cities. Additionally, Tórshavn is within the network of Nordic capitals (Copenhagen, Stockholm, Oslo, Helsinki, Mariehamn, Nuuk, Reykjavík).

Gallery[edit]

The photos marked "Vestaravág" and "Eystaravág" are of the same place, is this right? EJBH (talk) 01:01, 20 August 2009 (UTC)

Yes, but that´s not how it should be. That should be fixed.--SigurdX (talk) 20:26, 4 March 2010 (UTC) —Preceding unsigned comment added by SigurdX (talkcontribs) 20:19, 4 March 2010 (UTC)

WPCities importance rating[edit]

I changed this from "top" to "high". "Top" is reserved for "national capitals" (where nation is taken to mean a separate international state). The Faroes are described as an autonomous part of Denmark, so Thorshavn justifies "high" as it is the local capital. This is similar to Edinburgh and US state capitals.

Media gallery[edit]

I created a media gallery at Tórshavn/Media to round up, organize and pick media that can be used for the article. Please feel free to upload to the gallery, but please respect the goal of the gallery and WP:AGF. --OrbitOne 18:24, 3 January 2011 (UTC)

If anyone knows enough to write something about the houses in the historical district in Tórshavn, there are a few pictures to help illustrate.

Name[edit]

We really need a source for the claim that Tórshavn could be named after a person, since people were never named after gods during the Viking Age as this would be considered blasphemy. --Thathánka Íyotake (talk) 16:43, 15 December 2011 (UTC)
