In Stuttgart, the historical heritage and outstanding achievements of modernity are surprisingly harmoniously combined. Traditional medieval temples, Baroque palaces and Gothic towers are side by side with ultra-modern buildings of fashionable art galleries, museums and the headquarters of reputable automotive corporations.
Stuttgart was founded in the X century on the site of an old Roman settlement. Since the XIII century, under the patronage of the Württemberg dynasty, the city flourished, grew and became richer and more influential every century. At the beginning of the XX century, Mercedes-Benz and Porsche automobile productions were founded here. The city was badly battered during the Second World War, but its life quickly returned to a peaceful course. Now tourists can fully enjoy its beauty.
