Church of Kap Dan, Kulusuk

4.3
#1 of 7 in Historic Sites in Greenland
Located atop a hill overlooking the small village of Kulusuk, Church of Kap Dan draws visitors with its interesting history and unusual design. Built in 1908 from the ruins of a ship, the church serves as a gathering place for many locals and visitors. At the entrance, note the carved statue of an Eskimo woman facing the sea. The interior is quite modest, with a focus on the large, intricate stained glass windows that create colorful light inside. Inspect the altar, decorated with animal fur, and take some time to soak in the overall atmosphere of the place.
