Among the cultural institutions of Graz, the most recognizable and interesting is the Kunsthaus Museum, which was opened in 2003. This art museum occupies an original futuristic building, which in its outlines is a bit like a whale. From the moment of foundation, only temporary exhibitions are held in the museum. It does not have its permanent exposition. In addition to art exhibitions, it hosts events dedicated to the art of photography, cinema and design.
One of the most unusual museums in the world - the Arnold Schwarzenegger Museum, is located in the city. The miniature ancient town is the birthplace of the world famous actor and athlete. The museum is located in the same house where Arnold Schwarzenegger spent his childhood. The collection of its exhibits is very multifaceted. Here can be seen sports equipment, with which he practiced bodybuilding in his youth, and old posters of the very first films with his participation. Visitors of the museum can be photographed with the realistic figure of the Terminator.
One of the oldest buildings in the city is the beautiful St. Giles’ Cathedral, which was built in the 15th century. For many years, the cathedral was owned by the Jesuit Order. Its main feature is the luxurious interior decoration. In the early 20th century, the cathedral underwent a major reconstruction, during which it was possible to restore the interior. Since then it has remained unchanged.
