Austria: Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart in Salzburg

On Tuesday I got fourteen cards from Austria.

One of them shows various places in Salzburg related to Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart. Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart was born in Salzburg in 1756. He was a musical child genius and later became an influential composer of the Classical era. He composed over 600 works. In his childhood he made many voyages in Europe, but used to live in Salzburg. In 1781 he moved from Salzburg to Vienna. He died in Vienna in 1791.
I sent it from my holidays in Austria.
