The Illyrians gave the name "Iuvavum" ("seat of the Gods") to the city and the Celts and the Romans adopted it. In 696 the history of today´s city began, when St. Rupert founded the Abbey of St. Peter and Nonnberg Abbey. Under the rule of the Archdukes , the religious sovereigns of the country, the Fortress of Hohensalzburg was built and at the same time it became a Baroque residence. In 1816 Salzburg became a part of Austria and in 1920 capital of the Austrian province.
