Note: The city of Arhus is the capital of the county commune of Arhus, located on the eastern Jutland, lying along the coast of Arhus Bay. Nearby remains of Viking settlements indicate its possible origin. The city became a bishopric in 948, and had many religious institutions. It flourished in medieval times, but declined after the Reformation. With the 19th century came an expanded harbor, the railway, and industrialization, making it the foremost city on the Jutland Peninsula. It is now a busy port and manufacturing center, and is the nation's 3rd largest city. Despite industrialization, much of its old architecture remains, notably the 11th-century crypt of St. Nicholas under the Church of Our Lady and the 13th-century Flamboyant Gothic Arhus Cathedral dedicated to St. Clement, both in the Old Town section of the city. Other features are the Den Gamle By, an open-air museum that is a replica of an early Danish town, Arhus University founded in 1928, and an academy of music. The 2004 estimated population was 221,800.
