Photos from Florida's Capital City (and occasionally a few from other interesting places I have been fortunate enough to visit in my travels!)

You can see the railway tracks going up to the fortress just on the other side of St. Peter's Abbey. That is a statue of St. Peter in the foreground.
The first of many amazing views of the city of Salzburg from the fortress.
View of the Alps in the distance.
Inner courtyard and St. George's Chapel.
After lunch, my daughter and I took the less than one minute ride on the Festungsbahn funicular railway up to Hohensalzburg, the beautiful fortress the overlooks the city of Salzburg. The views were spectacular. Construction of the fortress began in 1077 and over the centuries, what began as a small castle grew into the huge fortress we see today.
