Salzburg with Salzach river, Austria
Info. Salzburg, Austria
The beautiful city of Salzburg in Austria may be best known as the birthplace of the 18th-century composer Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, but it’s got more to offer than classical music history. The Old Town part of the city survived World War II bombings intact. As a result, the medieval-era Romanesque and Gothic cathedrals and monasteries are still standing. Alongside these are many Baroque and Renaissance churches, the result of a 17th-century effort to give Salzburg a serious upgrade. In this image we're approaching the city centre via the Salzach river during a sublime winter twilight.
