UNESCO list of World Cultural Heritage
Sites, and the site was extended in 2010 with Eggenberg Palace
(German: Schloss Eggenberg).
Graz was sole Cultural Capital of Europe

The name of the city, Graz, formerly spelled Gratz, most likely
stems from the Slavic gradec, "small castle". Some archaeological
finds point to the erection of a small castle by Alpine Slavic people,
which over time became a heavily defended fortification.[citation
needed] In literary Slovene, gradec still means "small castle",
forming a hypocoristic derivative of Proto-West-South Slavic
*gradьcъ, whichs descends via liquid metathesis from Common Slavic
*gardьcъ and via the Slavic third palatalisation from Proto-Slavic
*gardiku, originally denoting "small town, settlement". The name thus
follows the common South Slavic pattern for naming settlements as
grad. The German name 'Graz' first appears in records in 1128.

During the 12th century, dukes under

Graz came under the rule of the
Habsburgs, and in 1281, gained special privileges from King Rudolph I.
In the 14th century,
Graz became the city of residence of the Inner
Austrian line of the Habsburgs. The royalty lived in the Schlossberg

Slovenia, and parts of
Italy (Carniola, Gorizia and Gradisca,

controlled by Italian Renaissance architects and artists. One of the
most famous buildings built in this style is the Landhaus, designed by

Karl-Franzens-Universität, also called the University of Graz, is the
city's oldest university, founded in 1585 by Archduke Karl II. For
most of its existence, it was controlled by the Catholic church, and
was closed in 1782 by Joseph II in an attempt to gain state control
over educational institutions. Joseph II transformed it into a lyceum
where civil servants and medical personnel were trained. In 1827 it
was re-instituted as a university by Emperor Franz I, thus gaining the
name 'Karl-Franzens Universität,' meaning 'Charles-Francis
University.' Over 30,000 students currently study at this university.

Graz lies in Styria, or Steiermark in German. Mark is an old German
word indicating a large area of land used as a defensive border, in
which the peasantry is taught how to organize and fight in the case of
an invasion. With a strategic location at the head of the open and
fertile Mur valley,
Graz was often assaulted (unsuccessfully), e.g. by
the Hungarians under
Matthias Corvinus in 1481, and by the Ottoman
Turks in 1529 and 1532. Apart from the Riegersburg Castle, the
Schlossberg was the only fortification in the region that never fell
to the Ottoman Turks.
Graz is home to the region's provincial armory,
which is the world's largest historical collection of late medieval
and Renaissance weaponry. It has been preserved since 1551, and
displays over 30,000 items.
From the earlier part of the 15th century,
Graz was the residence of
the younger branch of the Habsburgs, which succeeded to the imperial
throne in 1619 in the person of Emperor Ferdinand II, who moved the
capital to Vienna. New fortifications were built on the Schlossberg at
the end of the 16th century. Napoleon's army occupied
Graz in 1797. In
1809, the city withstood another assault by the French army. During
this attack, the commanding officer in the fortress was ordered to
defend it with about 900 men against Napoleon's army of about 3,000.
He successfully defended the Schlossberg against eight attacks, but
they were forced to give up after the Grande Armée occupied Vienna
and the Emperor ordered to surrender. Following the defeat of Austria
by Napoleonic forces at the
Battle of Wagram
Battle of Wagram in 1809, the
fortifications were demolished using explosives, as stipulated in the
Peace of Schönbrunn of the same year. The belltower and the civic
clock tower, often used as the symbol of Graz, were spared after the

Slovenes and Graz
Politically, culturally, scientifically and religiously,
Graz was an
important centre for all Slovenes, especially from the establishment
University of Graz
University of Graz in 1586 until the establishment of
Ljubljana in 1919. In 1574, the first Slovene Catholic
book (sl) was published in Graz, and in 1592, Hieronymus Megiser
Graz the book Dictionarium quatuor linguarum, the first
multilingual dictionary of Slovene.
Slovenes did not consider
Graz a German city, but their
own, a place to study while living at their relatives' homes and to
fulfill one's career ambitions. The student
Graz were a crucible of the Slovene identity and the
Slovene students in
Graz were more nationally aware than some others.
This led to fierce anti-Slovene efforts of German nationalists in Graz
before and during World War II.
Many Slovenian Styrians study there.
Slovenes are among the professors
at the Institute for Jazz in Graz. Numerous
Slovenes have found
employment there, while being formally unemployed in Slovenia. For
the Slovene culture,
Graz remains permanently important due to its
university and the
Universalmuseum Joanneum archives containing
numerous documents from the Slovenian Styria.
A symposium on the relation of
Graz and the
Slovenes was held in Graz
in 2010, at the occasion of the 200th anniversary of the establishment
of the first and oldest chair of Slovene. It was established at the
Graz in July 1811 on the initiative of Janez Nepomuk
Primic (sl). A collection of lectures on the topic was
published. The Slovenian Post commemorated the anniversary with a

Cultural Capital of Europe
Cultural Capital of Europe a few new public
buildings were erected in the city. The most famous is the Kunsthaus
(house of modern art) designed by Peter Cook and Colin Fournier, a
museum constructed next to the river Mur, and the
Murinsel (island in
the Mur), an island made of steel, situated in the river. It was
designed by the American architect
Vito Acconci and contains a café,
an open-air theatre and a playground.

Schlossberg (Castle mountain) with clock tower

UNESCO World Heritage List in
1999 due to the harmonious co-existence of typical buildings from
different epochs and in different architectural styles. Situated in a
cultural borderland between Central Europe,
Italy and the Balkan

and thus received its exceptional townscape. Today the old town
consists of over 1000 buildings, their age ranging from Gothic to
