Salzburg, the fourth-largest city in Austria and the capital of the federal state of Salzburg, is one of the most important for the tourism industry. Hundreds and thousands of visitors from all over the world visit it throughout the year.
Its "Old Town" (Altstadt) with its world famous baroque architecture is one of the best-preserved city centres north of the Alps, and a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
Its long cultural tradition -- Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart is the city’s most famous son -- is still fostered nowadays, on the one hand in the Mozarteum University, and on the other in the equally world-renowned Salzburg Festival, which, since it was founded in 1920, annually attracts thousands of music and drama lovers from all over the world.
