Carinthians are lucky to be blessed with many talents. Famous for being good singers, they have nurtured at least as many celebrated painters, writers and architects. Hardly surprising in this highly cultured environment.
Indeed, discovering Carinthia’s heritage means encountering over a thousand years of the province’s history and experiencing today’s stimulating environment at the confluence of three cultures. Historic art treasures, international music festivals, architecture, painting, theatre and the Carinthian choirs make the province an unparalleled cultural stage with a beautiful backdrop.
Austria´s southernmost province is in fact the one with the highest concentration of art treasures from virtually every period. While Austria celebrated its millennium in 1996, the Province of Carinthia can boast that it is a few years older. Countless art treasures testify to this rich past - from Celtic and Roman excavations to incredibly diverse sacral art.
