Graz is located in south-eastern Austria on the territory of the land of Styria, – the second largest city in the country. This city is an organic combination of developed industry and natural beauties (green parks, a river flowing through the city, a mountain), grandiose palaces in the Renaissance and Baroque style, and ultra-modern architectural designs.
Bright, colorful and cheerful Graz supposedly created for the enjoyment of life. The beauty of its architecture and surrounding natural landscapes is amazing. The amazing location of Graz adds to his charm. In the middle of the city stands the mountain Schlossberg, drowning in greenery, with the ancient symbol of the city – the tower with the clock. It is not much that was preserved from the fortress, which was once on a mountain plateau. It was this fortress that became the basis of the future city. In the VI century, the Slavic tribes founded here the settlement of Gradec, later renamed Graz.
