List of cities and towns in Greenland

This is a list of cities and towns in Greenland as of 2018. The term 'city' is loosely used to describe any populated area in Greenland, given that the most populated place is Nuuk, the capital, with 17,796 inhabitants.[1] In Greenland two kinds of settled areas are distinguished: illoqarfik (Greenlandic for 'town'; by in Danish) and nunaqarfik (Greenlandic for 'settlement'; bygd in Danish). The difference between the two decreased since the new administrative units were introduced in 2009, with the influence of previous municipality centers decreasing.

As of May 2018, Greenland has 55,877 people living along the coast and many islands. There are no permanent human landlocked settlements or towns in Greenland; the only landlocked human settlements that exist are seasonal research stations.
