Sisimiut is where the traditional and the modern Greenland meet. Sisimiut is a melting pot of old and new and everything in between. The area has been inhabited by humans the last 4,500 years, so there is no doubt that the place is filled with history and tradition. The past 250 years the city has undergone rapid development, which began with the construction of the colony Holsteinsborg and up till today, where Sisimiut is Greenland’s second largest city. A city where modern industry, educational institutions co-exist with the traditional hunting profession.
