Greenland is the largest island in the world. Nuuk is the capital of Greenland.
Greenland is located between the Atlantic Ocean and the Arctic Ocean and although part of the North American continent, has historically been associated with European countries such as Denmark and Norway. Today, Greenland is considered a separate area within the Kingdom of Denmark, which is why most of Greenland's gross domestic product depends on Denmark.
The Greenlandic culture is based primarily on the Inuit tradition and includes a healthy Scandinavian and Nordic culture. For the majority of Inuit, these are the prevalent traditions that can be reflected in art and other aspects. Hunting is considered a symbolic feature of the Inuit culture: although the life of the Greenlanders is of the utmost importance, hunting is of the utmost importance, even though people basically no longer need a living.
The Ilulissat Icefjord stretches from the Greenland ice sheet to 40 miles to Disco Bay. Jakobshavn Isbræ is the most prolific glacier in the northern hemisphere at the eastern end of the fjord. Every year, nearly 20 billion tons of icebergs are lost from the fjord after they have melted. Kaduaq is one of Greenland's most famous attractions and was designed by Schmidt Hammer Lassen. This modernist structure is L-shaped. It contains two hearings. The larger auditorium can accommodate more than a thousand people and can therefore be used to screen films, plays, concerts or conferences. The smaller auditorium can accommodate 508 people. The screen of the building tilts backwards and is inspired by the Northern Lights, which overlooks Nuuk's central space. It stands high on the ground and consists of larch wood on both sides.
