Graz - Austria

Quote:
Graz is the second-largest city in Austria after Vienna and the capital of the federal state of Styria (Steiermark).

On 1 January 2013 it had a population of 300,002

Graz has a long tradition as a student city: its six universities have more than 44,000 students. Its "Old Town" is one of the best-preserved city centres in Central Europe

Politically and culturally, Graz was for centuries more important for Slovenes than Ljubljana, the capital of Slovenia, and still remains influential

In 1999, Graz was added to the UNESCO list of World Cultural Heritage Sites, and the site was extended in 2010 by Schloss Eggenberg. Graz was sole Cultural Capital of Europe for 2003 and got the title of a City of Culinary Delights in 2008

Nice, looks forward to more! I have heard that Graz has very interesting architecture, both old and modern.

Yes that's true.
I arrived at the main station and that area is quite ugly, but the old town is really bautiful
