The name Graz probably comes from a Slavic word gradec – fortified place or a small castle. Here, on the foreground of the Alps in the 6th century Slavic and Germanic tribes fought with each other in order to seize control over the former Celtic and Roman terrains; the Germanic tribes won. However, not until the end of the10th century, when around the Mur river the March has been finally established, Graz started to play a role of a defensive, political and economical centre. In the 13th century the city was surrounded with walls and the castle was erected. During the rule of the Habsburgs Graz became one of the most important place of their empire while being their residence.
The Habsburgs patronage favored the development of science and arts. For some time the city was even a place where an outstanding astronomer Johannes Kepler lived and worked. Local school has been quickly raised to the level of university.
Graz is located in a picturesque surroundings. The river Mur is crosses it from the north to the south. The city is divided into 17 districts (Stadtbezirke). The Old Town (Altstadt) lies completely on the left bank of the river. It is dominated by the Castle Mountain (Schloßberg) where there are ruins of an old fortress with a characteristic clock tower (Glockenturm). The street of the Old Town are really narrow. Lots of them are closed to cars and that is why it is best to go everywhere by feet. The old city walls has partially survivedin the outskirts of the Old Town. The Old Town area is enclosed by the Wickenburgergasse, Parkstr., Glacisstr., Fischer-Alle, Burgring, Operring, Joanneumring and Radetzky streets. To the East there is a university and near Operaring – opera house. Along the river there are walkways and busy streets. Moving by a car in the centre is quite difficult due to high number of one-way streets.
West to the centre of the town the Eggenberg palace has been raised. It is one of the objects which are very popular among the tourists visiting Graz.
Castle Mountain is a perfect viewpoint and you can get there by a funicular railway (Schlossbergbahn which starts at Kaiser-Franz-Josef-Kai) by glass elevator or by steep stairs (Schloßbergstiege) from the at the foot of the Castle Mountain (Schloßbergplatz).
