Amazing museum. Lots of exhibits of various interests and ages. Paintings (including some Caspar David Friedrich ones), stone artifacts, tapestries etc. well displayd. So why 3 stars only? Because no exhibit has an inscription in English - you need to speak German. I had to guess what I was looking at. So a 6 star museum with a 3 star rating. What a pity for such a museum...

Spannend, vielseitig und informativ wird hier in Modern gestalteten historischen Räumen Geschichte, Kunst und Kultur der Region vermittelt. Sehr freundlicher, hilfsbereiter Service. Behindertengerechte Zugänge. Aufwändige Inszenierung der Fakten, facettenreiche Darstellung machen Vergangenes lebendig. Mich begeisterte die Malerei: nachdem wir das Kloster Eldena gesehen haben, hier nun die Darstellung des C.D. Friedrich und der Romantiker. Sehr sehenswert und ein Erlebnis, das Sie sich gönnen sollten. Greifswald gewinnt neue Dimensionen und Sie neue Einsichten. Lassen Sie sich begeistern!

Amphitheatre of the Three Gauls

The Amphitheatre of the Three Gauls was part of the federal sanctuary of the three Gauls dedicated to the cult of Rome and Augustus celebrated by the 60 Gallic tribes when they gathered at Lugdunum (Lyon). The amphitheatre was built at the foot of the La Croix-Rousse hill at what was then the confluence of the Rhône and Saône.

Excavations have revealed a basement of three elliptical walls linked by cross-walls and a channel surrounding the oval central arena. The arena was slightly sloped, with the building"s south part supported by a now-vanished vault. The arena"s dimensions are 67,6m by 42m. This phase of the amphitheatre housed games which accompanied the imperial cult, with its low capacity (1,800 seats) being enough for delegations from the 60 Gallic tribes.

The amphitheatre was expanded at the start of the 2nd century. Two galleries were added around the old amphitheatre, raising its width from 25 metres to 105 metres and its capacity to about 20,000 seats. In so doing it made it a building open to the whole population of Lugdunum and its environs.
