Introduction to Graz
On our way to Italy we've crossed many different cities. Graz was one of them. So here is a quick overview of this beautiful Austrian city.
Graz - the second-largest city in Austria after Vienna.
View of the Rathaus. (Town Hall)
In front of the Rathaus you will find the Hauptplatz (the main-square of Graz) with the monument for Erzherzog Johann - it is a great place to sit on the steps of the monument and relax a bit.
An extensive public transportation network makes Graz an easy city to navigate without a car.
Not really sure what this sign means.
Trams are part of the whole city.
Grazer Schloßberg (Castle mountain) with clock tower.
You can climb the stairs or use an elevator. Of course we decided to climb.
Four dove fountain, right in front of the entrance to the castle.
Graz clock Tower on the background.
All streets are very old fashioned, classical. I like it.
Very interesting place to take a walk.
On our way met a lot of cool dogs. I just couldn't resist.
Half way up.
All you need is a great book.
On the top you can find a mini sculpture of the clock tower.
Graz Clock Tower, Austria
Beautiful view on the city.
Found a door which was locked.
A huge well that went about 100m down.
Beautiful day for such a walk.
Time to go down and return to the city.
After all it was 29-th of December. Almost New Year, and you can feel the spirit in the air.
Christmas trees are hanged upside down.
Beautiful city center.
Lunch time. :)
People are rushing to buy presents and gifts.
Train museum. A huge gold wagon.
Main Christmas tree. Not the prettiest one to be honest but looks alright.

It must be really beautiful in the evening. When all streets are enlightened. It's a shame we had to move on. Our next destination is Venice.comments powered by Disqus
