Austria's second largest city, Graz lies on the River Mur and has long been a popular stopover for tourists. It is a city with many historical buildings, particularly in the Old Town with its numerous Baroque façades. There is also Schlossberg, a large hill that rises behind the picturesque town. Excavations reveal the area was settled as far back as AD 800, the town was first mentioned in 1128, after which time it passed into the hands of the Habsburgs and soon after rose in importance as a place of trade and commerce. Many of the surviving buildings were influenced by Italian architectural styles, including Schloss Eggenberg. As a result of this abundance of historically significant buildings, Graz is today an important cultural center that was added to the list of UNESCO World Heritage Sites in 1999. Graz is the birthplace of Hollywood star Arnold Schwarzenegger, and a little museum here is dedicated to his career.
La Strada is the only festival in Austria that collaborates with international renowned artists who explore new forms of expression outside established theaters. The festival supports innovative productions and helps Austrian artists to establish themselves in the pan-European festival circuit. It also has the international festival for Street & Puppet Theater. Throughout "La Strada" the whole of Graz turns into an eccentric centre for street art.
