Nunkes (pronunciation: /nʌnkes/; Ekuostian: nunkes, IPA: /n̪un̪kes/) is the fourth largest city in Barradiwa. It is widely known for its universities, museums, proximity to Stalo (being a mere 12 minute train ride away), and its status as one of the busiest railway stops for the Trans-Ekuosian Railway, due to being a hub city connecting three of the network's rail lines. The city was selected to be the host for the 2016 Sahar Olympics partly due to its prime location next to water, mountains, and having larger cities relatively close by to allow for easy control of the influx of tourists.
Historically, the city is quite significant as being the oldest city in Barradiwa and one of the oldest cities in the world, having been built by Halarian farmers approximately 8,500 years ago. Perhaps because of this, the city was chosen as the site for the oldest university of archaeology in the world which was constructed between 1697 and 1743.
