The North Atlantic Current keeps the harbours ice free during winter. The natural flora of the islands is mainly based on mosses and bog vegetation.
Language:Faroese is a North Germanic language with around 47, 000 speakers in the Faroe Islands (F?oyar). Faroese is closely related to Icelandic and the dialects of western Norway, though as a result of the isolation, the Faroese language has a distinctive character of its own.

Population:

If the first inhabitants of the Faroe Islands were Irish monks, then they must have lived as a very small group of settlers. Later, when the Vikings colonised the islands, there was a considerable increase in the population. However, it never exceeded 5, 000 until the 18th century. Around 1349, about half of the islands' people died of the Black Death plague.

Capital City:

T'shavn is the capital and largest town of the Faroe Islands. It is located in the southern part on the east coast of Streymoy.
