Bozen (Bolzano in Italian) is the capital of South Tyrol, a mountainous region in northern Italy, where the majority of the population consists of German-speaking ethnic Austrians. Bozen is a small city located in the valley of the Etsch with approx. 100000 inhabitants. The city's Germanic character, enhanced by the narrow cobblestone streets, Austrian-style churches and pervasive bilingual signage give it the unique flavor of a city at crossroads between Italian and Germanic cultures.
