Arhus, the beautiful city and the ancient capital city of Denmark is a real beautiful capital city where it lies in the Jutland, although the capital city was moved to Copenhagen!
I personally, feel myself comfort in this city, more than in Copenhagen. I never felt that Copenhagen is a capital city. Copenhagen is a forest of asphalt and it has no heart.
The following article is about this beautiful city in Denmark peppered by some personal thoughts in a hot (Arhusians) dish.

Århus is a real city of smiles as the people in Denmark call it. To pronounce the name correct, it is Aurhus and you can pronounce the R as in French and keep the H silent. The people write it Århus in Danish or rewrite the Å as double A, so it becomes Aarhus especially in the electronic media.
It is the second largest city in Denmark, with 300,000 Danish inhabitants and other people from different countries and with different cultural backgrounds, which make the mixed and integrated flavour of the city.
Folk consider it the metropolis of Jutland with the old Viking town stands beautiful in the heart of modernization. It really is! That makes some selective people feel it, sense and enjoy it more than that forest of cement, which has replaced it as the capital city of Denmark.
I in fact enjoy visiting the old Viking town, where the Danish classical buildings are great sites to see. I had the feeling of the past when I sat there sometimes ago, especially at night to enjoy looking at the buildings, touched by the reflection of the whispering lights on the walls.
The whispers of the lights and the classical sense of the town inspire some verses to drop slightly in the memory of pleasure mixed with pure sadness that endures when somebody travels in the time through the present moment of enjoyment.
They inspire the nature of creation as well, as the beautiful scenes of the classical architecture attract the viewer to travel on a journey through the time even if the viewer is not a citizen in that beautiful classical location.
However, the classical buildings are not limited also to the old section of the metropolis. You find them also in the heart of Arhus while walking through the center of the city from the train station or the bus station along the main street in Arhus modern market.
You feel like sailing away on the Port of Arhus, even before you get on board... sailing across the seas to be where freedom is, inspired by Rod Stewart.
"I am sailing" always jumps to the memory and descends to the lips to whisper, while you were enjoying imaginary trips through the times to see all the moments of pleasure you came through until the moment you were at the sea in this beautiful city.
Relaxation has special meaning in this part of the city, especially when walk crossing to the beautiful beaches in summers just in front of many parks, where many people enjoy swimming, sailing, running, sometimes biking or surfing and skating on the waters.
The smell of fried or grilled food in the green parks makes your saliva run and make you feel hungry. The sounds escalating from there with different bilingual expressions make you feel in another international world where all humans from different cultural backgrounds live and interact happily.
I enjoy visiting Åros Centre sometimes as well to see the rare sculptures, monuments, video presentations and a sample of mummification or embalmment.
Many wings in Åros Centre display video footages with sound and image effects in fascinating fantasy and fascinating scenes.
The center of the modern city is full of life and enjoyments especially in the weekends. Inevitable smiles encourage you to say hello in Danish. Even before you greet those nice people, you receive some hellos with warm smiles.
The architects of the city fixed the cobblestone laneways in Arhus very well to design the pavements and make them and other corridors beautiful. In fact, they remind me of beautiful similar places where I had lived for sometimes or visited in the past forty years.
