Klaksvik is the second biggest town of the Faroe Island, and the biggest white fish town too. The town is located on Bordoy, which is one of the northernmost islands. Klaksvik is located between two inlets lying back to back. It is an important harbour with fishing industry, and a modern fishing-fleet. Originally four farms were at the location where Klaksvik is now. By time they grew into four villages that finally merged to what now is called Klaksvik. What really kicked off the development towards a town was the setup of a centralised store for all the northern islands on the location. The church Christians-kirkjan dates from 1963. Its architecture is unconventional with a detached bell-frame. It is made of Faroese basalt and wood. Inside the church a Faroese rowing boat is hanging down from the ceiling. The font is made of a 4000 years old heathen sacrificial bowl originating from Denmark.
