Salzburg, starting as the Roman settlement “Juvavum”, with a history of more than 2000 years is one of the most beautiful travel destinations of all Austrian cities. For a long time, Salzburg was the capital of the prince-archdiocese Salzburg and until 1816 it was belonging to Bavaria, until the city was incorporated into the Habsburg empire.
Salt trade made the city rich and important, and thus Hohensalzburg Castle was built for the town’s protection. It still presents itself as a noble and powerful fortress above the city. Starting from 17th century, like in many other towns in the southern German area, pompous baroque style prevailed in Salzburg, too. As usual ostentatious profundity of sovereign power was the reason for it – a fact every visitor can simply enjoy nowadays.
Salzburg’s surname is “City of Mozart”, because one of the most ingenious composers of all times had been born here on January 27th 1756 on Getreidegasse: Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart. His birthplace is a museum now and to be lionized by visitors. But it’s not only this street that honours its most prominent son. Mozart is omnipresent in this city and his face is smiling down on the visitors of Salzburg from plates, cups, caps and the famous, delicious treat “Mozartkugel” on each corner.
All this is Salzburg: Architecture, music, baroque, mountains and the well-known story “The Sound of Music” – a movie about the Trapp family, which plays in Salzburg and was filmed here, too. The movie won 5 Oscars and countless American visitors are still inextricably linked with the city, because of this motion picture.
