In the literal translation Salzburg means "the salt castle" and the name originates from the Middle Ages when the Salzach River was used for salt transportation. This important trade route contributed to the fact that on the site of the present city there was a castle, around which the city expanded and developed over the centuries. And over these centuries, Salzburg has left a trace in the history of civilization: its baroque architecture of the old city has been included in the list of cultural heritage of UNESCO, and it is also known as the city of classical music in which Volfgang Amadeus Mozart was born.
