Nuuk’s Oversize Post Box

Nuuk (the capital and largest town in Greenland) claims to be the home of Santa Claus and is the world’s northernmost capital. But this is not its only record: on the side of its Tourist Office, an oversize Postal Box can be seen.

Some say it’s the largest Post Box in the world, others (including the Guinness World Records organization) say the largest one is in Japan. We don’t actually care: even if Nuuk’s mailbox is not the largest in the worlds, it’s definitely the coolest (and coldest).
