A Special Experience
Jul. 2019
This delightful little wooden church is a Cathedral! It is beautifully sited close to the sea, and looks particularly charming from the cliff top. As we approached we could see that there was a small group of people in the entrance and someone was singing a hymn for them in English. It turned out that an elderly couple were just about to be married in the church, and both their families were fully represented wearing traditional beaded costumes, all in white, with long beaded boots. We stayed for the beginning of the service and later saw the bridal party assemble at the entrance for photographs. The church itself is a simple building and simply decorated with a traditional model of a ship hanging from the ceiling, but seeing it filled for such a happy occasion is an experience we shall never forget.

the church was closed the walk to it was very easy from the ship. I am glad I didn't pay for a tour there all places were close to the dock and could walk the best view was from a big stone mountain that all couldn't climb. I got half
way and had to turn around as I was doing this solo. Not for those who aren't steady on their feet. Worth the short climb.

The Nuuk Cathedral is a beautiful church overlooking the water. Located in the very scenic area of old Nuuk. This is an active church, as activities were going on each day that I walked by.

Was closed when we went but looked in and just a basic small, cute church. However, the church really shines as a beautiful subject for photos from the hill next to it showing itself and all the colorful houses in Nuuk.

The Old Church. This cathedral is just beautiful inside. The wood floors & straight back pews transport you to another time. Beautiful views of the harbor. Best photo ops...here and directly front & to the side is a yellow building (old hospital) & docked kayaks...it was the million dollar picture!

The church looks great from the outside. Unfortunately, I couldn’t get inside as it was locked. There were no opening hours displayed. The steps outside were cleared of snow.
