The building on the right is the old cathedral of the Faroe Islands. It was never finished, and has been standing like this since YYYY (nŠr var ta­?). The white church on the left is the church of Kirkjub°ur.

Until the Reformation (nŠr var ta­?) was Kirkjub°ur the home of the bishop in the Faroes. From the Reformation and until 1994 (1995?) was the Faroes under the bishop in Copenhagen (Denmark), and not untill then did we get a bishop in Tˇrshavn.

The population in Kirkjub°ur is less than 100 people.
