Salzburg - a city shaped by the salt trade, by the fortunes of the former prince archbishops and monasteries, by gifted personalities such as W.A. Mozart and by the world-famous Salzburg Festival. The old town impresses with sacral buildings that form into the so-called "Rome of the North", with a medieval district, the fortress Hohensalzburg, and the Abbey St. Peter. The unique history helped Salzburg to become a city with "special value for mankind" with places of culture, art and crafts. Modern urban artworks, popular farmers' markets and beautiful gardens further enliven the hustle and bustle of the city.
