Searching for wonderful place where you want to enjoy and get relaxed? Hm, I think this post is created only for you. I hope you will enjoy in these cool reasons why you need to visit Hallstatt. Until the 19th century the beautiful Austrian town of Hallstatt, which overlooks Lake Hallstatt, was accessible only by boat or mountain trail. But, today it is a popular tourist destination as a functioning lakeside town with almost 800 residents. Hallstatt is known for its production of salt, dating back to prehistoric times, and gave its name to the Hallstatt culture, a culture often linked to Celtic, Proto-Celtic, and pre-Illyrian peoples.
