A city on everybody’s taste

Filed Under Austria

Situated on the river Mur, Graz is the second largest city in Austria, after Vienna. It is famous mainly for it’s university life, having a long tradition as a student city.

The Old Town in Graz was added to the UNESCO World Heritage List because here architecture of  various times and styles co-exist.

What you can see in Graz is the hill Schloßberg with a great panorama of the entire Graz. You can  get there on Schloßbergbahn which is a funicular railway.  On the top of this hill there is the Uhrturm, a symbol of Graz. The Dom of Graz is a rare Gothic monument which you will be happy to photograph.
