Easter time in Graz

CeilingLanded at GrazThe European Navigation Conference is being held this week at Graz. That's the excuse for our visit.

We fly from Stansted Airport to Graz, Austria. It's a two hour flight with Ryanair.

Graz is also enjoying the status of "Culture Capital of Europe 2003."

Austrian Easter is a time for decoration, more so than England.

 

Local AreaLocal Church TowerWe stay at the Hotel Sud to the south of the city.

There's a good bus service. The number 32 gets us to the Zentrum without too much hanging around.

The hillside cemetery at night.
Candles are set on each grave. The candles are lit, lasting a week.
 They form a strange glow.

 

Conrad

We visit Conrad's store. It's like a Maplin's but 100 times better! If you're into electronics, you name it, it's got it. (OK I exaggerate!)

I get dragged out after 2 hours.
