Stanley is the capital of the Falkland Islands and is in fact the only real city in the country with around 2000 people living here. It is located in the far east of the country on East Island. Although it is the cultural and economical centre, nothing much goes around here and the true sights in the country are mainly outside the capital. But the city has a few decent places to sleep and has in fact a number of sights which keeps the interested travellers busy for at least a day or so, before going out and explore the quiet landscapes.

Weather

The weather is mild but warm days are rare and temperatures of 20 °C are not very common. It is also one of the wettest places in the country. That said, temperatures are not that cold in winter either, but the constant wind doesn't feel that nice for that matter.
