    Salzburg can be divided into Salz and Burg, the former meaning German "salt" and the latter meaning "highland". Named for the nearby salt mines and castles, across the grain street, there is an open space called the Bishop's Palace Square. There is a big ball on the square. There are several magnificent Baroque-style buildings in the square. The cathedral is one of them. It was founded by Virgie in 774 and has been built several times. It is said to be the first Baroque-style Church North of the Alps. There is a huge one in the middle of the square. Salzburg is the largest Baroque fountain in Central Europe. More than 1,000 years ago, Salzburg was an independent Church state, and the symbol of the supreme religious power. Therefore, there are many classical buildings left over from its construction. Salzburg Cathedral is one of the most important buildings in the city. The church has gone through eight centuries, storms and storms, from the destruction and reconstruction of the fire, witnessed the historical traces of Salzburg. As a soul Church in Salzburg, it was once a baptismal sanctuary of Mozart, where he served as an organist for many years in his short life, and still displays the organ Mozart played at that time. And the funeral of the famous conductor Karajan was also held in this cathedral. The interior walls of the church are mainly gray and white, and the complex sculptures of Baroque are vividly displayed on the beams and paintings. Inside the main wall of the Cathedral are four giant statues - "St. Peter and Paul with keys and swords, and the state patron saints Rupert and Virgil with salt bottles and church models. The two emblazoned shields represent the two main builders of the cathedral, Marcus Sitikus and Paris Rodrn. The ceiling paintings depict the life and suffering of Jesus. Entering Salzburg Cathedral is attracted by the exquisite sculptures. The most striking one is the organ of the cathedral, which is said to be the first in Europe, with a total of 6,000 organs. A group of pipe organs on the side of the wall is particularly eye-catching, which Mozart used. In the corner of the church, we need a precious cultural relic, the baptismal basin, in which young Mozart was baptized. The Museum of the church is also worth seeing. It contains medieval sculptures of the church and Baroque paintings. To the west of the Bishop's Square, this is the palace of the archbishops who ruled Salzburg for more than a thousand years. The sky is late and they are only in a hurry outside. I took a photo in a hurry, as if I was doing a modern exhibition. It's a pity. Walking out of the church and down the alley beside the square is the fortress of the castle.

    Salzburger Dom (German: Salzburger Dom) is a 17th century Baroque building, the Cathedral of the Catholic Diocese of Salzburg, located in the Austrian city of Salzburg. This is where Mozart was baptized. In 1598, the original Roman church was severely damaged and forced to be demolished and rebuilt into a Baroque building. The foundation was laid in 1614 and completed in 1628. It's 466 feet long and 109 feet high. The church is located in Mozart Square, not far from the entrance of Salzburg Castle, basically within walking distance can reach several scenic spots. The interior of the church (if it's as intertwined as I am) is estimated to take half an hour to an hour to visit, but the interior design is really beautiful and spectacular, so it's worth the trip.

    Salzburg Cathedral is a mixture of Baroque and Roman architectural styles from the seventeenth century. On the front wall of the cathedral, there are four huge saints. The interior decoration is very gorgeous. The camera can take pictures all the way, but there are several simple numbers 774, 1628, 1959 on the fence of the cathedral gate, but there are important memorabilia of the cathedral.

    The cathedral is very beautiful. The sculptures inside, the paintings on the windows and the light candlesticks are all very beautiful. It is worth remembering. Many tourists and local people pray inside. Of course, there are many tourists, but the scene is quiet and there is no noise. It is worth visiting.

    I have always had a feeling of rejection of churches. Every time I go to churches, I feel very depressed. I always feel that the magnetic field is not compatible. So in Macau, churches usually do not enter. All the way through the trip were churches that looked like flowers on horseback. Only this plain and simple church makes me feel warm and comfortable when I enter. It must be a holy place of light and spirit.

    Salzburg Cathedral is a Baroque building. Its exterior remains the shape of the building. Its interior structure is well preserved. Its magnificent elevation and huge round roof reflect the magnificent features of the early Baroque style on the Alpine side. The interior of the church is also beautifully decorated, especially its dome has a very symmetrical aesthetic feeling.

    It's a very beautiful and distinctive cathedral. Especially the three numbers at the door, you must remember to look at them. It represents the time when the church was overhauled three times. The interior is also very beautiful. It's not far from the Food Hutong. You can visit it together.

    The church is magnificent and relatively large. It can be visited free of charge. The dome inside is very beautiful. There are many religious and mythological paintings that deserve to be appreciated. In addition, there is a basement visiting room, a prayer room, full of mystery.
