Travel Guide to Bolzano, Italy

Bolzano is located in one of Italian regions and is an administrative center of the autonomous region Bolzano. The country has three most widely used languages – Italian, German and Rhaeto-Romanic. However, we should mention that the biggest part of the region’s citizens is Germans.
Earlier the territory of the city was full of numerous swamps and only in15 BC the son of the Emperor August decided to build here a bridge and several watching towers.
Later this land got into ownership of bishop Trento and he made an order to build a big city there. The city was rebuilt and expanded many times and this action was so systematic that today we can see lots of buildings referring to different architectural styles and periods. This doesn’t make Bolzano unattractive and adds unforgettable charm to the city, moreover, here you can see multiple buildings that are known as masterpieces created by many great masters.
The local gothic cathedral will definitely attract your attention. It was built in 1295. Actually, the building started earlier and it was planned to be made in the Roman style. However, that didn’t happen and the building was finished only in the 15th century, bringing many traits of gothic style to the cathedral. Today this magnificent building is 65 meters high and has a belfry. This is not the only sight in the city and Bolzano has many cultural and historical sights.
