There are only 300 (316 to be exact) inhabitants in Kulusuk. And they do have a Church with the image of Christ -- looks like Christianity has also reached this part of the world. But they do mix their religions, and weddings are made in this Church but in "Inuit Style". Apparently, they marry early at about 16 years of age.

The Church is a very nice new structure and there is a miniature ship hanging at the wall at the side of the altar. I prayed a bit on the pew and then I asked if I could take pictures...and I was allowed and so I did.

I did not see the priest and I was curious who it was? And I also had no info when the Church was built and if this was the original structure - just repainted with RED? It's hard to do research on this little town, not much info about it on internet, haha...I also forgot to ask my guide because I was moving around too much, hehehe

UPDATE! UPDATE! UPDATE!
I made a video of my Kulusuk trip!
Hope you like it!
