Klagenfurt Zentrum: Tour with Manfred (video)

My uncle Manfred is a tour guide for many places in Europe, and on Friday he was gracious enough to take us around the city centre of Klagenfurt to show us all the historical sites. Beautiful older architecture in the places that weren't destroyed through history, and many statues and other landmarks with great stories behind them. For instance, Klagenfurt was once a rich town, and you can see that they flaunted this by installing marble slabs lining the curbs of the sidewalks in much of the city. In some squares, the whole floor is made from marble blocks.
