Introducing Salzburg


As the fourth biggest city in the country, it got its name ‘Salt Castle’ from the barges carrying salt along the Salzach River whose tolls provided the city with a living in days gone by. While visiting the Salzburg, which is surrounded by city walls remaining from the medieval age, you can feel like you are on a movie set. With an atmosphere reminiscent of a fairy-tale, Salzburg offers a visual feast with its squares, historical texture and well preserved city center. Although it became an important city in terms of industry after the Second World War, today the biggest contributor to its economy is tourism. If you have not yet discovered the fairy-tale city of Salzburg, we highly recommend you to add it to the top of your list of cities to visit, and mark it as an absolute must-see.
