What it’s like to visit Nuuk

Nuuk is this tiny Arctic capital where you’ll find age old tradition living amongst World-class modernity.

Nuuk is home to many historical sights. In the picturesque Old Harbour you’ll find dreamy wooden homes, nestled like pearls along the water’s edge. Nearby you’ll find the city’s oldest buildings on the grounds of the expansive National Art Museum, which houses a notable collection of artifacts from some of the first settlers, and beautiful paintings depicting Greenland in many eras. Arguably, the most iconic piece of art is a bronze sculpture depicting the Mother of the Sea. Her tale about the importance of nature is steeped in Greenlandic history, and to this day evokes strong emotion and respect throughout the country.
