With today’s entry we are starting our travel category. At the moment, we are staying in Austria and reporting from adorable town Hallstatt ­čÖé
As one of the most beautiful places in Austria, Hallstatt was long on our travel list. It is located in Upper Austria’s region Salzkammegut, around 300km away from Vienna. One day would be enough to explore this little village and its surroundings, but we wanted to do more things and decided to stay for the weekend.

Hallstatt is a tiny lake town, surrounded by mountains. It is very popular among tourists, not only for its scenic beauty, but also for its archaeological importance. The entire region Salzkammergut is well known because of the ancient salt mines. Salt was mined here as early as 3,000 BC and the mine above Hallstatt is considered the oldest salt mine in the world. Salt mined here was transported to the Baltic Sea as well as the Mediterranean. Hallstatt an important archaeological site. The finds date back to Bronze Age, and the Celtic culture of that period (800-400 BC) was named the Hallstatt civilization. Many of the artifacts are displayed in Hallstatt Museum. he The entire Hallstatt region has been declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO.

Here are our suggestions of top 7 things that you should do in Hallstatt:
1. Explore the historical city center and walk up to the small church in the hill (with beautiful view)
2. Take your own typical Hallstatt picture at the picture point (it is close to the tourist info center, and always crowded with tourists from Asia, so you will easily fins it)
3. Take a boat ride on lake Hallstatt (unfortunately we didn’t manage to do this)
4. Visit the Hallstatt Museum
5. Have a lunch at some of the charming restaurants with a lake view. Try soup with cheese dumpling (absolutely delicious!) and fish from the lake.
6. Buy Hallstatt salt as a souvenir.
7. Visit Salzwelten, the oldest salt mine in the world

Enjoy the pictures! ­čÖé

Dana┼ínjim postom zapo─Źinjemo novu kategoriju na blogu, gde ─çemo objavljivati kratke izve┼ítaje sa na┼íih putovanja u blizini Be─Źa i ┼íire. Za sada ostajemo u Austriji i izve┼ítavamo iz preslatkog gradi─ça Hal┼ítata. ­čÖé
Kao jedno od najlep┼íih mesta u Austriji, Hal┼ítat je dugo bio na na┼íoj listi putovanja. Nalazi se u Gornjoj Austriji, u regionu Salzkammergut, oko 300km od Be─Źa. Jedan dan bi bio dovoljan da se obi─Ĺe ovo malo mesto i njegova okolina, ali mi smo imali u planu da vidimo vi┼íe toga, tako da smo ostale preko vikenda.

Hal┼ítat je minijaturan gradi─ç na jezeru, okru┼żenom brdima. Izuzetno je popularn me─Ĺu turistima, ne samo zbog svoje jedinstvene lepote, ve─ç i arheolo┼íkog zna─Źaja. Ceo region Salzkammergut je poznat po rudnicima soli, od kojih se najstariji nalazi ba┼í u brdima iznad Hal┼ítata. Istorijski izvori pokazuju da se ovde so vadi od 3000. godine p.n.e. i taj rudnik se smatra najstarijim rudnikom soli na svetu. Hal┼ítat je tako─Ĺe i bogato arheolo┼íko nalazi┼íte, gde su prona─Ĺeni izvori iz bronzanog doba, koji svedo─Źe o civilizaciji (kasnije nazvanoj Hal┼ítatska civilizacija) koja je naseljavala ovo mesto. Prona─Ĺeno blago iz ovog perioda se nalazi u Hal┼ítatskom muzeju, ali i ostalim delovima Austrije. Zbog svog izuzetnog istorijskog zna─Źaja Hal┼ítat je pod za┼ítitom i progla┼íen UNESCO-vom Svetskom Kulturnom Ba┼ítinom.

Pre nego ┼íto vas ostavimo da u┼żivate u fotografijama, evo par preporuka kako da provedete dan u Hal┼ítatu:

1. Obi─Ĺite centar grada i posetite crkvicu u brdima, gde je i prelep vidikovac
2. Napravite svoju klasi─Źnu fotografiju Hal┼ítata sa tipi─Źnog mesta predvi─Ĺenog za to (nalazi se blizu turisti─Źkog centra, i uvek je prepuno turistima iz Azije, tako da ga ne─çete proma┼íiti)
3. Provozajte se brodi─çem po jezeru (mi to ovog puta nazalost nismo stigle)
4. Posetite mali muzej u centru grada
5. Probajte ribu ulovljenu u Halštatskom jezeru i probajte supu sa knedlom od sira (koja je stvarno izvrsna!)
6. Kupite Halštatsku planinsku so kao suvenir
7. Posetite najstariji rudnik soli “Salzwelten” na svetu
