Salzburg, Austria

One of the famous and historical city in Austria is Salzburg. I would say, Salzburg is one of the most beautiful cities I had been to. It's attraction is a mixture of the flair of the Altstadt which means Old Town, the many magnificent churches and the old burgers (people) residences with their splendid facades.

It is also the grandeur of the buildings of the prince-archbishops, the outstanding fortress and the ever present Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, Salzburg's favourite son.

Salzburg is such a beautiful city worth visiting for!! hope you enjoy the photos..will share some more next time!! have a great day to all!!

the Pferdeschemme or The Horse Pond built in 1695. The horses from the Archbishops stables were washed here. It was designed by Fischer v. Erlach and the horse frescos were made by the Court painter Franz Anton Ebner.

this yellow house is where the famous composer/musician was born, Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart

this small street is called Getreidergasse..the famous shopping street in Salzburg!!
