salzburg, austria

salzburg is where the sound of music was filmed. i was surprised to realize that most austrians and germans only know of this film because people from all over the world (probably dominated by native english speakers), want to visit the city because of the movie! its a gorgeous place, and also the birthplace of mozart!

Great pictures! Salzburg is one of my favorite places. I've been there 3 or 4 times and managed to hear some Mozart performed every time (I'm a big fan) including one time in the Residenz in a room where young Mozart himself often played. Thanks for the memories!

I'm so glad I'm not the only one who takes random photos of beautiful doors.
