Salzburg April/May 2017

On the last day of April 2017 one of my dreams came true: I went to Salzburg! Going there was on my mind for a really long time – I am Sound of Music fan – but I never went there before, even though I went skiing to places very close, like Bad Gastein area for example.

Our trip started early in the morining, as we had to go across the border (I live around 30 minutes from Czechia, Czech Republic until some time ago) to Bohumin, from where we got on the train to Vienna, and then straight to Salzburg.

So, here we go!IMG_1583

My personal favourite: Frittatensuppe!

And some other delicious meals (here pictured: Tiroler Gröstl and sauerkraut).

A cementary, Petersfriedhof, which was used as a inspiration for the final scene in Sound of Music.

Then we went to see the Schloss Leopoldskron and saw the hill from the other side. It felt as if we have left the town completely and went to the country side.

Schloss Leopoldskron: also a location from the Sound of Music.

The start of the second day: we went to the Untersberg, which is a mountain close to Salzburg.

Next stop: Hellbrunn!

The gazebo from the movie. Yes, THE gazebo from the Sixteen on Seventeen sequence.

One of my favourite parts: seeing the Sound of Music play at the Landestheater! The performance was truly phenomenal, in my opinion it was easily West End quality. There were many Austrians who were wearing local Austrian clothes, and some of them reacted so emotionally; after the performance the actors made a sing along in English (as the play was in German) and they honestly had me in tears.

The last, third day, started at the Mirabell Gardens.

Delicious chocolates (always buy chocolate while in Austria, trust me on that).

And it’s time to go home!
