Nuuk is the capital and largest city of Greenland.  It is the seat of government and the country´s largest cultural and economic centre.  The major cities closest to the capital are Iqaluit in Greenland and St. John´s in Canada, and Reykjavík in Iceland.  Nuuk contains almost a quarter of Greenland´s population, and also has the tallest building in Greenland.  Nuuk is the seat of government for the Sermersooq municipality.  In January 2016, it had a population of 17,316, making it one of the smallest capital cities in the world by population.

Nuuk is the Kalaallisut word for "cape".  It is so named because of its position at the end of the Nuup Kangerlua fjord on the eastern shore of the Labrador Sea.  Its latitude, at 64°10´ N, makes it the world´s northernmost capital, located only a few kilometres farther north than the Icelandic capital Reykjavík.
