Old Town of Salzburg

 What is unique is a treasure of the Old Town of Salzburg, spoiled local resident - for which he became almost everyday mundane scenes - often back to notice only when it stops near the guests of the city, attracted by a beautiful sight. Ecstatic utterances like: "The life in this wonderful city can only dream!" Sometimes lead to confusion of the average citizen, who, however, I must confess how seldom he, in fact, draws attention to this beauty.

Indeed, the city of Salzburg - and especially its historic Old Town - one of the paradises that can be found in Europe. Announcement of the Old City of Salzburg "World Cultural Heritage" by UNESCO in 1997 confirmed his international recognition.

The old town with its variety of architectural styles is a real treasure, not least, thanks to strict conservation activities. If a leisurely walk along the many small side streets (best known are Getreidegasse ("Corn Lane"), Judengasse ("Jewish Lane"), Goldgasse ("Golden Lane"), Kegasse ("Quay Lane"), as well as Linzergasse ("Lintsevsky Lane ") and Shtayngasse (" Stone Lane ")), in a limited space we can see the construction of the Middle Ages, Romantic, Renaissance, Baroque, and the noble houses bourgeois period of the monarchy in the classical style. There is hardly an epoch which may be left in its architectural traces of Salzburg!
