The old market square was located within the city walls and was the main market of the city in the XIII century. With the development of the city, with the plague experienced by the epidemic, with the abolition of burghers' arbitrariness and generally bringing order to the city, ten years before the expulsion of the Jews, in 1488 a fountain of St. Florian appeared on the market square. Not without reason, it was precisely this holy martyr that was chosen during these years. The end of the 15th century brings not only economic growth to the city, but also strengthens the authority of the church. If the most ancient holy martyrs of Salzburg are Maxim and his disciples, and their history is filled with hopeless tragedy, then the legend of Saint Florian is much older and filled with wonderful revelations. Florian was a Roman soldier who served in the province of Norik. The one that Odokart will depose. Florian secretly accepted Christianity, and hearing that they were going to execute Christians in Lorch (not far from Linz), he went there. Florian could not ask for the unfortunate, because he himself was captured, pulled out the shoulder blades and put on the neck of the millstone, drowned in the river. But the body did not disappear, but was miraculously saved, and the eagle protected it and the burial happened and everything was fine. Feel the difference between the tragedy and the hopelessness of the stories of the VII and VIII centuries and almost romanticism of the beginning of the XVI-th century?

Здравствуйте! Добро пожаловать в мои экскурсии! Я как-то понял, что погулять с каждым я не успею, гулять в группах мало кому сейчас хочется, а гулять «вслепую» быстро становится скучно. Так и появилась идея записывать маршруты и создавать полноценные путеводители, которые я здесь собираю. Если вы попали сюда, значит вам нужен ключик, чтобы открыть маршрут – пожалуйста! Напишите мне сообщение на телефон +972 537907561 или на и я с радостью вам помогу! Иначе, зачем я всё это делаю?
