Palace Leopoldskron




Schloss Leopoldskron is pure inspiration! Situated in a unique lakeside location with magnificent view of the majestic mountains, the palace is only a short walk from the old town of Salzburg.

In 1736 the Prince Archbishop of Salzburg, Leopold Anton Freiherr von Firmian, was inspired to build his family residence in this beautiful and unique location. He died shortly after its completion in 1744 and, as an expression of his love for this palace, willed that his heart be buried beneath the chapel of Schloss Leopoldskron.

Ownership of the palace changed frequently throughout the 19th century. The most famous owner was King Louis I. of Bavaria, who celebrated the engagement of the future Empress Sissi to Emperor Franz Josef of Austria with the family at Schloss Leopoldskron.

In 1918 Max Reinhardt, the founder of the Salzburg Festival and Europe´s most famous theater impresario, bought the estate, lovingly restored it over the next twenty years to its original splendor, and making it an important international venue for the artistic and cultural life of his time.


Since 1965 the palace is world-famous for being the original film
location of the movie “The Sound of Music”
which has been seen by more than a billion people all over the world.

Never ignore a person who loves you






Never ignore a person that loves you, cares for you, and misses you.
Because one day, you might wake up from your sleep and realize that you lost the moon while counting stars

- Unknown






When someone walks out of your life, let them. There’s no use in wasting your time on people that leave you. What you make of yourself and your future is no longer tied to them. Yeah, you may miss them, but remember that you weren’t the first one to give up. 



°


A person who loves you is like a moon, he lives and shines only to look after, take care and love you by all his heart. But the habit of human beings is to love someone who is inaccessible for us. But one day we realize that we’ve lost a person who really deserved our love.








“The things we like and dislike change. And we could wish all day long that they didn’t, but they always will.”

The officers' pavilion, KOMÁRNO, SLOVAKIA






KOMÁRNO, SLOVAKIA
 
 




The officers' pavilion was built in 1858-1863 in a neo-Gothic style,
 
 resembling English Gothic architecture.
 
It is a two-storied corner building with two polygonal
 
angle towers on the main facade with a terrace on the main floor.
 
The neo-Gothic building of the officers' pavilion is located
 
 in the same neighbourhood with the general Klapka square
 
en route to the New and Old Fortresses
 
 Originally, the building was used as an apartment block
 
for the officers (and their families) of the imperial
 
and the royal army.
 
 On the main floor, there was a casino for the officers,
 
which nowadays serves for the representative purposes
 
 of the city. In 1999-2000 an amphitheater was
 
built on its courtyard.
