This little Austrian town, Graz lies on the Middle Alps’ eastern side, with the Schlossberg mountain in the middle of the town and the River Mura. The town itself kept its medieval cultural aspects such as buildings, but also developed some modern extravagant features. Between these buildings we can find the romantic, cozy, street structure of the town. Graz is the second largest city of Austria so even if a lot of sights are reachable on foot it is advised that you rent a car, since it saves a lot of valuable time, and the roads of the Alps and the Schlossberg gives us a marvelous scenic view. One of the most spectacular things to try out is the Schlossbergbahn which is a railway going up all the way on the mountain giving us a breathtaking journey around it. Another must-visit sight is the Uhrturm which is the Big Ben of Graz. There are three bells in this bell and clock tower, the bells ring 3 times a day and when they do there are two wooden dolls that dance up in the tower. The many churches of Graz also worth a visit, they look quite modern thanks to the renovations that the town had made. On the Main Square lies the Rathaus which is the town hall of Graz, and in its building there are also boutiques and a café. Graz also serves as home to the most important castle of Styria, the Eggenberg Castle which is made in a way to represent the universe architecturally.
