Nuuk is the most populous town in Greenland with 15,862 residents, making it one of the least populated national capitals in the world. Hans Egede founded Nuuk in 1728 at the mouth of a giant fjord system in Western Greenland. Today, the bustling city, by Greenlandic standards, is home to the Katuaq Culture Center, the National Museum as well as many other popular tourist attractions.
