The pink house of Ilulissat

Ilulissat, formerly Jakobshavn, is a town in the Qaasuitsup municipality in western Greenland, located approximately 200 km (120 mi) north of the Arctic Circle. With the population of 4,546 as of 2010, it is the third-largest settlement in Greenland, after Nuuk and Sisimiut.
In direct translation, Ilulissat is the Kalaallisut word "Icebergs". The picturesque Ilulissat Icefjord has made Ilulissat Greenland's most popular tourist destination and tourism is now the town's principal industry.
