Although Greenland is the world's largest island, it remains relatively unknown to most people. Only about 15 percent of Greenland is NOT frozen year-round. Although citys are a relatively new concept for Greenlanders, Nuuk is the islands capital and largest city, at about 16,000 people. It lies on a peninsula along the central west coast and is the key to an extensive system of fjords. Like most places in Greenland, it displays a magnificent vista of mountains and valleys. Nuuks formal history generally dates from 1728, when a Lutheran missionary Hans Egede, came from Denmark to join 12 Greenlandic families in this place, which was then called Godthab. He built a trading post, a Lutheran mission, and opened the doors to slow, but steady integration between Inuit and European people.
