Nuuk in the webcam is an amazing city and the capital of Greenland as part of the Kingdom of Denmark: the residence of Santa Claus with unique nature, northern lights, exotic dishes and excellent opportunities to ski and get to know local attractions.
Of course, the most important tourist spot in Nuuk, where the live broadcast is coming from, is the house of Santa Claus, where there is an office and a post office.
Of great interest to the guests of Nuuk in the online camera is the sculpture of the “Mother of the Sea” – the patroness of all marine life. According to legend, she lived at the bottom of the ocean and sent animals to the surface so that people could hunt them for food. But mankind has gone astray, and Mother Sea’s long hair has become tangled. Being very angry with the people, the Mother of the Sea deprived them of her generosity. Then a strong and brave shaman had to embark on a dangerous journey to the bottom of the ocean to comb the Mother of the Sea’s hair with a comb so that she would again send the animals to the surface. The unique sculpture is located on the beach: at low tide, you can see it in its entirety.
Museum fans, traveling around Nuuk in an online live camera, will appreciate the exhibits of the Museum of Art. It contains a huge collection of paintings by Greenlandic artists and rare artifacts. Also in the museum you can get acquainted with the history of Greenland and find out how art has developed in the country in recent years.
A must visit is the famous Greenland Museum – the “home” for the world-famous mummies found in the north of the country. In addition, there is a collection of Greenlandic artifacts, including clothes, boats, kayaks, hunting weapons, as well as a collection of tapestries woven from animal hair and painted with dyes from plants.
Other sights of Nuuk in the web camera include the cultural center of Katuaq, the building of the city treasury, decorated with large tapestries, and the house of the founder of the city, Hans Egede, where the residence of the government of Greenland is located today.
Another significant place worth visiting while in Nuuk, where the online broadcast comes from, is the Sisorarfiit ski resort (better in snowy winter). When the weather is nice, you can go skiing, snowboarding or tobogganing on that territory. The resort has two lifts: large and small, as well as a cafe where you can drink a cup of hot chocolate. Sisorarfiit will be interesting for both beginners and experienced skiers and snowboarders. In the summer it is possible to go hiking.
The climate in the city of Nuuk, where the webcam is located, is subarctic. Due to the proximity of Baffin Bay and the warm current, the temperature fluctuation is quite small. Basically, throughout the year, sub-zero temperatures reign here, despite the fact that the average temperature of the coldest months is only -8C. In July, the average air temperature rises to + 7C.
