Gautig (English pronunciation: [gaʊtɪg]) is the capital and largest city of the Arcois District. the city of Gautig is located along the southern shore of the Gulf of Alora at the edge of the Bay of Arcois and near the mouths of the Arcois and Savona Rivers. Arcois also boasts its own natural harbor which supports the berthing of large and small ships including freighters.


History

Arcois was founded in 1801 by German settlers and is named after Henri Alexander Gautig who was believed to have established the first outpost known as Fort Gautig, which overlooks the Gautig Harbor. This outpost established a safe port for German settlers that were looking to colonize the area. The outpost has been preserved and restored and is now listed as a Gobrasanya Heritage site and hosts a museum and tours.

Gautig became the capital city of Arcois in 1869 when the district of Arcois was formed by the Gobrasi Senate. It has remained its capital since its founding.
