 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!

Here Mozart lived from 1773 to 1780. The museum exhibits about the life and history of the Mozart family house.

Dwelling house of Mozart, also called "Tantsmeystersky House" was first mentioned in official documents in 1617. Until 1685 it consisted of two buildings. In 1711, on special order it was allowed to hold dance lessons for people of noble origin.

In 1773, Mozart's family moved to a new residence in the area of ​​Hannibal (now - the area Makart (Makartplatts) 8.) The spacious apartments have enough space to meet friends and musicians. A frequent visitor here was Emanuel Schikaneder (1751-1812), actor, theater director and librettist, "The Magic Flute."

In this house, Wolfgang Amadeus lived until 1780, where he wrote a symphony, divertissements, serenades, piano and violin concertos, a concerto for bassoon, arias, masses and other works of church music. He composed this "Re pastore" (KV 208), began the opera "La Finta giardiniera" ("The imaginary gardener") (KV 196) and "Idomeneo" (KV 366).

Here, Mozart's sister Nannerl lived - up to their wedding (1784), and his father Leopold - until his death (1787).

16th October 1944 two-thirds of that house was destroyed by bombs. The then owner sold the victim of the bombing of the building of Italian insurance company "Generali Assikuratsioni" for the construction of its office, which later, in 1989, was purchased by the International Mozarteum Foundation.

Back in 1955 the International Mozarteum Foundation has made available for museum purposes Tantsmeysterskogo preserved part of the hall. 2nd May 1994 was demolished office building of the insurance company, and on May 4 began the restoration and reconstruction of the old plans.
