The capital of Greenland has an ice-free harbour at the entrance of Godthabsfjord, on the south-western coast of the island.

Norse colonists struggled to survive around the area of present-day Nuuk, during the 9th to 15th centuries, and later abandoned the settlement.

The present city was founded by the Danes as Godthab - Good Hope - in 1721.

Kulusuk, Tasiilaq.


The settlement of Thule, in north-west Greenland, was founded by the Danish explorer Knud Rasmussen, in 1910, and was used as a base for five Arctic expeditions between 1912 and 1924.

The Inuit were the original inhabitants of the site, and their distinct way of life was shown to the world as Thule culture.

The Inuit have been relocated, and today it is a large strategic air base.
