Salzburg: Finding the Sound of Music


Salzburg is the fourth-largest city in Austria.

It is where the timeless film 'The Sound of Music' is based.

And it is another of my favourite cities.

I recently came across these photos and just wanted to share a few I took whilst there last June :) The photos show one of the large piazzas in the city, and also details of Salzburg Cathedral, which is a seventeenth-century Baroque building with a beautiful interior.

I saw these horses about 15 years ago when I first came to Salzburg with my family. It was right after I first watched the Sound of Music and as we passed by the large fountain nearby I still remember my dad pointing out that the scene where Maria sings 'I have confidence' was filmed in this area. So these horses have always reminded me of the film.

It was raining all day when I visited last year, hence the umbrella and jacket! Still a beautiful city though and the buildings are marvellous. Behind me is the fountain where Maria splashes water over the statue horses whilst singing.
