Niels Finsens Gota
The Niels Finsens Gota is the big shopping street in Torshavn. It is not that special, but it has a nice atmosphere!!
The main shopping street in Tórshavn is Niels Finsens Gøta (incidently named after Faroese Doctor Niels R Finsen, who won the nobel prize in 1903)
There are a number of tourist shops along here, as well as the Tourist Information Centre. An excellent bookshop, selling books in English, Faroese and Danish attracts the bookworm kinda people but still the hope for people inclined towards other interests is also catered.

SMS Shopping Centre

SMS Shopping Center or SOS Shopping Center as it is occasionally known, contains Torshavn's largest supermarket Miklagarður. A few fast food outlets and a few other interesting stores are lined up here.
It is really an interesting experience to visit it atleast once where you do get surprised by the number of shops over the nearby surrounding as well.

Especially the weekends are enjoyable when you just finish up with your week long official stuff and simply wanna relax by spending some relaxing moments. Thus, going for shopping to see what is happening down town becomes the top most priority of your wish-list.

This place gives you that feeling and certainly the ambiance to suit it with a buzz. A great atmosphere amidst everything from books,clothes,plants and medicine exhibits help you to fulfill your desire and needs.
