The capital Nuuk is surrounded by a wonderful area of fjords – the world’s second largest, with plenty of whales. The city is Greenland’s oldest, founded in 1728 and is a hectic metropolis with its nearly 16,000 inhabitants.
The area reflects the enormous cultural development that Greenland has gone through. Here you meet fishermen, artists, hunters, executives and IT experts, and you can visit restaurants, nightclubs and cafes. The culture is flourishing and wide-ranging; from exhibitions of old and new to experimental theatre and new music. Farther south is Paamiut, which is known for its large number of sea eagles and great hiking terrains.
