    Mary being crowned at the Dome

    by WrigleyTodd Updated Mar 14, 2004

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: This is going to be hard to explain. Looking directly at the front of the Dome, walk back so you are past the statue of Mary and through the arches across the way. If you back up far enough and then walk slowly forward you'll see that the crown on the cathedral actually slowly places itself on Mary's head when you walk toward the cathedral. This was a little archiectural trick that was done with the statue and the dome. Kinda neat.

    Learn the Dome

    by WrigleyTodd Written Jan 10, 2004

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: Learn as much history about the Dome/Cathedral as possible. It has some interesting stories to it. For instance, it was once bombed by an American fighter plane. That's not the best of the story yet. There was a priest inside the Dome when the bomb dropped and his experience made him write a church song about it. You can still hear the song played from time to time during mass (yes, every weekend there is still service here) and, what's funny, is that the song sounds like a bomb dropping with the noise of an object falling through the air and getting closer and then large percussion and blasts. Interesting history.

    Inside the Dom in Salzburg

    Fondest memory: Bruno was really a great help anyway; explaining to me what he knew & what he thought he knew.
    I just listened or rather pretending to listen to what he said.
    Changing my 2nd roll of film now in Salzburg.
    I was thiking to stay here for a long time but Bruno was thinking otherwise...

    Inside The Dom in Salzburg

    Fondest memory: I was really mesmerized by what I saw ! I took my own sweet times in taking all the aspects or rather the decorations inside The Dom.
    Not that I know the names of what I saw, do I have to ? GOD ! I'm not doing a thesis okay !
    Bruno just watching me, smiling to himself; maybe thinking that "oh, another visitor has been 'eaten' by my hometown !"...

    Salzburger Dom - the beautiful...

    Favorite thing: Salzburger Dom - the beautiful baroque cathedral in the old town. Very impressive from the inside too.
    The square in front of it is used as a stage for the Salzburg Opera Festival, which takes place each summer.

    Lord of the ring

    Favorite thing: Next to the Dom you will find this statue which reminded me of the movie "Lord of the rings" and I was wondering if it inspired the set designers
