YOU GONNA LOVE Salzburg
The large number of churches has also caused the city to be known as "the German Rome". UNESCO nominated Salzburg's Old City as part of the World's Cultural and Natural Heritage in 1997. The first inhabitants date back about 2500 years. The reason for which was the salt, which was a very powerful and expensive gift. At that time salt was more expensive than gold! That is the reason why our city is called Salzburg and our major river is named Salzach.
