Salzburg is known for being Mozart’s home town. This is were he grew up and spent most of his early days composing music. There is a huge statue of him in the city centre or the Mozart square as its called.
This city is also famous for the sets of Sound of Music (as though you didn’t know).. But I had to mention that the Von Trapp family were based here. However, the city has a lot more history and beauty to it and should not be confined to the DVD of the ‘Sound of Music’. In real life the amazing landscapes and scenery are not only charming but breathe taking. The amazing little city will make you fall in love with it immediately… just like I did. With Hohensalzburg Castle dominating the city and ofcourse the Salzburg Cathedral (known as Dom I think!), one generally tends to forget the other monuments, buildings and churches. Here are a few arches and domes where my heart skipped a beat!!
Not to forget the road side cafes. We spent most evenings sitting at these cafes…. And just people watching. How lovely! My favourite place in Salzburg was the Grave Yard. One particular scene from the Sound of Music was shot here. Its beauty breathe taking and leaves you astonished. I will have to do a separate blog on the Grave Yard. This city can charm anyone!
