AUSTRIA - City of Graz – Historic Centre and Schloss Eggenberg

"The City of Graz – Historic Centre and Schloss Eggenberg bear witness to an exemplary model of the living heritage of a central European urban complex influenced by the secular presence of the Habsburgs and the cultural and artistic role played by the main aristocratic families. They are a harmonious blend of the architectural styles and artistic movements that have succeeded each other from the Middle Ages until the 18th century, from the many neighbouring regions of Central and Mediterranean Europe. They embody a diversified and highly comprehensive ensemble of architectural, decorative and landscape examples of these interchanges of influence." -

Anita shared so much information about this castle!

"Schloss Eggenberg relies on the Gregorian Calendar as a basis for this universe.
The palace has 365 windows, one for each day of the the year, 52 are on the 24 rooms representing the weeks of the year.
The 2nd storey contains 24 state rooms which symbolize the hours in a single day.
Every floor bares exactly 31 rooms, counting the number of days in a month."

So unique! Brilliant people behind the construction of the palace...
Thank you so much, Anita!
