Historic Graz

Graz is a pretty Central European city where various architectural styles and artistic movements have blended since the Middle Ages.
The influence of the neighbouring countries (Hungary, Slovenia and also Italy) is recognisable too.

Cultural Capital 2003

While it could be a certain surprise that Graz has become the Cultural Capital of Europe in 2003 (after all, why not Vienna?), the city rises to the challenge with an impressive cultural programme and exciting, creative ideas.

    You've done a nice presentation on Arnold's hometown, its history and sights. Thank you for the mini tour!
