The narrow street, wound its way through the Alstadt. Archaic medieval facades manifested a feeling of nostalgia, a sense of timeless beauty beckoning within one’s heart.
“What you leave behind is not what is engraved in stone monuments, but what is woven into the lives of others.” -Pericles
Walking through the streets of Salzburg’s “Altstadt”, one is immediately plunged into an era of splendour. Sophisticated and colorful baroque facades line intricate streets, lane ways and squares of this beautiful city. Majestic spires and cupolas of churches , reminiscent of the medieval and renaissance periods of European history, transform the skyline. Walking down Kapitelgasse, and looking back down this beautiful lane I could not but admire the classical beauty of Salzburg with its exquisite buildings, simplistic yet elegantly designed.
