Most of Greenland is gathered in Nuuk. A quarter of the country’s population lives in the capital, and the town has ice, whales, magnificent scenery, traditions and myths – or everything that most people would imagine makes up the heart of the country. The capital’s heart is big, and there’s capacity for renewal and innovation.
You’ll see this on a short walk from the colonial gardens with their beautiful old buildings to the town centre with a roof deck board, as in the old days was the place where you could buy freshly caught raw supplies to take home.
Today you can buy freshly caught supplies in the modern buildings in the pedestrian zone in the center. Carry on past the house of culture at Katuaq with its facade resembling the flickering northern lights. Drop into a café and enjoy a glass of something cold or a delicious cafe latte. Head out to the University of Greenland and the Greenland Institute of Natural Resources and enjoy modern architecture which blends in superbly with the natural surroundings.
Experiences in Nuuk
Nuuk is a city in change, and the capital largely represents modern and industrial Greenland, while the city still retains its charm and authenticity in several places.
