Sight of Salzburg

Salzburg is beside Vienna the most beautiful Austrian city and it was endowed with much – harmony of nature and city, deep cultural roots or mineral wealth of salt mines, which gave it its name. Not only the best known local native Mozart predicted to the city a fate of global Mecca of classical music. Who will be tired of permanent imaginary presence of the great composer in alleys of the Old town, that can heal himself quickly by a climb on any hill in the surroundings - Alps begin to rise right several kilometres behind the city.

Hohensalzburg – Fortress Hohensalzburg is the largest preserved castle complex in Central Europe. Salzburg fortress served as a defensive castle complex and temporary residence of princely arcibishops. Besides it also served as barracks and jail. In whole history none of its besiegers has ever succeed to conquer it.

Mozart's birth-house – Here, on the third floor of „Hagenauer's house” in Getreidegasse no. 9, the 27th of January 1756 saw the sun Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart. Museum was opened here on 15th of June 1880. Living spaces of Mozarts with original equipment are part of the museum. Among the most famous exhibits belong Mozart's childhood violin, his concert violin or family portraits. First floor of Mozart's birth-house is dedicated to annually changing exhibitions on the Mozart theme since 1981 and second floor is entirely devoted to the theme "Mozart and theatre".

Hellbrunn – Villa Hellbrunn with large park and number of fountains was built as a summer residence of local arcibishop in 17th century. However, it served as arcibishop's residence and a place for solving severe political problems of the country very rarely. With its luxurious halls, its charming garden areal and unique Water games, the chateau was a place of celebrations and entertainment, feasts and crowning cultural events right from the beginning. Water games include dozens of sneaky fountains or in ground hidden water nozzles, which sprinkle passers-by in the moment, they would least expect it.
