A beautiful day at the beautiful Salzburg with the cousins were just unforgettable. It was such a last minute plan on the night before that we have decided to visit Salzburg and never in my life that I would thought of visiting Austria. It was definitely one of the best decisions that we have made during our trip because it was the shooting location of one of my favorite childhood films – The Sound of Music! We travelled by train from Munich and the entire journey was approximately 1 hour 30 minutes.
We first visited the spectacular Mirabell Gardens which is within the walking distance from Salzburg train station. The gardens are extremely well maintained with fountains, sculptures and varieties of colorful flowers. I would highly recommend a visit to Mirabell Gardens but it would be quite a challenge when comes to taking some nice shots of the gardens because of the crowd.
Mozart Residence was our second destination and since we arrived late in the evening near to the closing time, we could not have the opportunity to visit the interior. Nevertheless, it was nice to came across the place. It was sad to leave Salzburg but we had an amazing time there. We should have spent at least a night or two there and to explore more of the attractions such as the castle and palace. (Year 2010)
