Salzburg, or better said SalzburgerLand, is organised in five ‘Gaus’ – Flachgau, Tennengau, Pongau, Pinzgau and Lungau. The state capital of Salzburg is located in the north of the county and is known worldwide as the City of Mozart.
By the way: Salzburg got its name from the rich Salt deposits which were previously mined on the Dürrnberg near Hallein and transported along the Salzach river.
