Sisimiut, Greenland

Greenland is the world’s largest island, and it is an autonomous country within the Kingdom of Denmark. Sisimiut (which literally means “the people at the fox burrows”), is the second-largest city in Greenland with population of around 5600. Fishing is the main industry in there. Sisimiut has been a settlement site for around 4500 years, originally inhabited by the people of the Saqqaq culture who came from Arctic Canada. Today city’s population is a mix of the Inuit and Danish peoples. This postcard shows women in traditional suits.

I received this awesome postcard in envelope, and still looking for stamped postcard from Greenland.
