Geocache Description:




Sisimiut (Danish: Holsteinsborg) is a town in central-western Greenland. It is the administrative center of the Qeqqata municipality. With 5,460 inhabitants as of 2010, it is the second-largest town in Greenland. It lies 75 km north of the Arctic Circle and is Greenland's northernmost year-round ice-free port. Sisimiut has been a settlement site for around 4,500 years, with the Inuit - the majority of the present population - arriving around a thousand years ago. Hans Egede, the missionary to Greenland, arrived in 1721 and established his church in the vicinity. (Wikipedia)

The cache is placed near the memorial with the big black cross.
