What you will do
Salzburg is proud of its past. As an ecclesiastical principality which enjoyed the exclusive status of being responsible to the Emperor directly, Salzburg was ruled by archbishops, uniting both secular and ecclesiastical power.
The modern city is located on the site of Roman Juvavum, a settlement which grew up on one of the major military roads of the ancient world. After the collapse of Rome, centuries passed until, in 696, Bishop Rupert founded the city anew.
The face of the contemporary Salzburg, dominated by the baroque majesty of the old city, was created in the 17th and 18th centuries. It was then that the Prince-archbishops Wolf Dietrich, Markus Sittikus and Paris Lodron realized their major building programmes, thereby leaving an indelible mark on the architecture of the city. Even today, over one hundred churches, castles and palaces bear witness to the power of the Salzburg archbishops.
