Graz is Austria’s second city, and may well be its smartest. As well as boasting six universities, it has strong ties to famous scientists such as Erwin Schrodinger and Nikola Tesla. During the day the city has a relaxed atmosphere, with plenty of pleasant shops to browse and pretty streets to wander through. Like most university towns it truly comes to life after dark with plenty of buzzing bars and nightclubs. The vibrant art scene, gorgeous architecture, and pretty parkland all add to the pleasant vibe of Graz.
