Mirabell Palace and Gardens in Salzburg
Austria, Salzburg

Salzburg is a beautiful Baroque city, and the famous Mirabell Palace is also built in the same Baroque style. This palace was built by Prince-Archbishop Wolf Dietrich von Reiteno for his mistress Salome Alt, who bore him 15 children. In 1690, near the Mirabell Palace, on the site of former vegetable gardens, a magnificent baroque garden was designed according to the project of landscape architect Johann Bernhard Fischer von Erlach. Initially, both the residence and the garden bore the name Altenau. The palace was rebuilt, burned, and, as a result, little was left of its original appearance. But the Mirabell garden was rebuilt in 1730 and now looks almost the same as in those years - terraces, marble sculptures and fountains, although it was restored according to old drawings and drawings. The exhibition pavilion is located in a former aviary. There is one of the oldest “green theater” in the Mirabell Garden, and the garden of the gnomes looking gloomy and ugly - it seemed funny to the gentlemen of those years. One of the most popular excursions in the city is “In the wake of the Sound of Music”. It was in the Mirabell Garden that the children sang Do-re-mi.
