Sights of Salzburg (Part One)

Salzburg is known as the birthplace of Mozart and for the film “Sound of Music”. Its literal translation means “salt fortress” and rose to prominence on the back of its salt mines. Salt is now affectionately called white gold in Salzburg.  It’s such a cute town and was named a UNESCO World heritage site in 1997. We only spent 4 days there and fell completely in love with it. Since it’s situated in the valleys of the Alps, the landscape is breathtaking. It also rains quite a bit and therefore is very lush and green.

One of many cafes that first opened even before the United States existed!
