literally nothing interesting, it's definitely not worth paying 30 kroner for it. maximum 10 minutes of sightseeing

When we visited the museum, we had an unpleasant surprise. There was no light! Due to the presence of only an automatic ticket counter (connected to electricity), I witnessed someone buying tickets for 90 DKK thinking that this would turn on the light. Well no.

Fascinating museum. Quite normal at the beginning but when you enter the tour through one family history it turns out to be perfect. Amazing place

It's a small museum but it provides plenty of information about early Århus. The cost is low but you learn a lot. I don't think it would be interesting to very small children as there is much to read and little interactive parts.

Church of St Donatus

The Church of St Donatus name refers to Donatus of Zadar, who began construction on this church in the 9th century and ended it on the northeastern part of the Roman forum. It is the largest Pre-Romanesque building in Croatia.

The beginning of the building of the church was placed to the second half of the 8th century, and it is supposed to have been completed in the 9th century. The Zadar bishop and diplomat Donat (8th and 9th centuries) is credited with the building of the church. He led the representations of the Dalmatian cities to Constantinople and Charles the Great, which is why this church bears slight resemblance to Charlemagne"s court chapels, especially the one in Aachen, and also to the Basilica of San Vitale in Ravenna. It belongs to the Pre-Romanesque architectural period.

The circular church, formerly domed, is 27 m high and is characterised by simplicity and technical primitivism.
