Escort Salzburg ( Escortagency & Escortservice Austria )
The birth of the town Salzburg can be set in the year 696 when the missionary St. Rubert arrived and founded the Benedictine Monastery of St. Peters. The town merged into an independent church state, ruled by a sovereign, the Archbishop. He was not only the spiritual leader but possessed also worldly powers. Its organisation was Vatican-like and it was no coincidence that Salzburg was called the "Rome of the North".
Located between the two mountains Kapuzinerberg and Mönchsberg and the River Salzach it is a picturesque city with small alleys, quaint colorful town homes, rich castles and palaces, neat gardens and a high density of churches and monasteries.
The Fortress of Hohensalzburg, a 900 year old building you cannot overlook, is considered to be the best-preserved Medieval Fortress throughout Europe.
St. Sebastian is the city's most impressive church, built in the Gothic style, with a well-tended cemetery. The city of Salzburg is proof of the wealth and power of the Archbishop and the Catholic Church and is today a home to approximately 150.000 inhabitants.
Salzburg is also a city of music. It was home and birthplace of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart and the memorial on the Mozart square is honouring this city's famous son. Salzburg has also always been a very popular stop for musicians from around the world, due the Archbishops' traditional keenness for music and still is today. Nowadays Salzburg is known for its annual Festival (Salzburger Festspiele), which offers a variety of operas, concerts and theatre plays, reaching from classical to contemporary styles. The city is also a very popular place to get a decent musical or theatrical education and so every year many students from around the world enroll in one of the different schools situated in Salzburg.
