Nuuk is situated on the eastern shore of the Labrador Sea at the end of the Nuup Kangerlua fjord. With a population of just over 16,000, it is one of the world's smallest capital cities. Despite this, Nuuk has a long history of habitation stretching back to the ancient Paleo-Eskimo people of the Saqqaq culture in 2,200 BC. Nuuk, as it is today, was founded in 1728 by merchant and missionary Hans Egede, a statue of whom can be found in the colonial old town on the east side of town, along with his house and church. Greenland has a long and fascinating history, and it's definitely worth taking your car rental to the National Museum and the Nuuk Art Museum, both of which feature a host of cultural and historical exhibitions. Animal enthusiasts will also want to take a short drive out of town to the fjord for a spot of whale watching. So if you're visiting Nuuk, why not rent a car with Sixt and continue your journey with peace of mind.
