It is the playful lightness of Salzburg, a capital city in miniature, that makes Salzburg so distinctive. The silhouettes of the fortress, cathedral and church towers of the baroque city with many other sights on the northern edge of Alps together with the Salzburg’s beauteousness, were reasons why Salzburg has been officially appointed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
