We will show you the city of Salzburg as it used to be when the car car was newly on the road and show you what has changed over the years.
Salzburg, known as the most Italian baroque city of the north, dates back to the time of the Romans. Salzburg became independent and wealthy due to the prince archbishops who ruled over the area from the 7th century until the 19th century. Through intelligent business maneuvers in utilizing Salzburg’s vast salt resources, known as “white gold”, the city, its inhabitants, and the archbishops amassed incredible wealth. Reminants of the archbishops are visible everywhere in the city, in its buildings, its art, and its artifacts.
After losing its independence, Salzburg st out to re-establish its identity and, with the creation of the Salzburg music festival in 1920, became one of the most famous classical music destinations in Europe. Through the heritage of Mozart and Salzburg’s conservative political movement, the city made it through the crisis of world wars and economic downturns to become cultural and economical hotspot of Austria.
