Nice little church with a super sweet pastor.

It is not the impression "Danish village church" you get when you see Øster Ulslev Church for the first time. What you first notice is the octagonal spire in the middle of the roof. As far as is known, it was set up in 1694. The church is considered one of Lolland's elders, although one has no definite baptismal certificate for the church, so it is known that it was built in the Romanesque period from 1150 to 1300.

Very beautiful small village church, which is centrally located in the city. Built around the year 1225. The roof rider was added in 1693. The porch is from 1854 and replaced an older and somewhat larger one. Legend has it that a gentleman named Ugge has ruled Øster- and Vester Ulslev and with his ships had winter berths in both places, "for which credible characteristics can still be shown and about that there were more letters in the diocesan coffin, which here still stands in Øster Ulslev church , but were lost in the Swedish feud «. (The Swedes crossed the ice from Langeland to Lolland in 5-6 February 1658)

Caerleon Roman Amphitheatre

Built around AD 90 to entertain the legionaries stationed at the fort of Caerleon (Isca), the impressive amphitheatre was the Roman equivalent of today’s multiplex cinema. Wooden benches provided seating for up to 6,000 spectators, who would gather to watch bloodthirsty displays featuring gladiatorial combat and exotic wild animals.

Long after the Romans left, the amphitheatre took on a new life in Arthurian legend. Geoffrey of Monmouth, the somewhat imaginative 12th-century scholar, wrote in his History of the Kings of Britain that Arthur was crowned in Caerleon and that the ruined amphitheatre was actually the remains of King Arthur’s Round Table.

Today it is the most complete Roman amphitheatre in Britain.
