Travel : Hallstatt,Austria

 Salam guys,
how are your weekdays treating you?Mine so far so good.Just when I write this,it's less than a month till I fly back to Malaysia to celebrate Ramadhan and raya together with my family.But this time I shall expect a more challenging trip back home becasuse we're flying back only the two of us without my husband!

Well,husband will follow only in July,but I can already imagine all the hassles with the little one :)
Fingers crossed for a smooth and less challenging flight.

In the meantime,this post is about Hallstatt,a UNESCO world heritage site that we visited a week after we came back from Istanbul.Did I mention that we did a few series of travels in April?

A little fact about Hallstatt

Hallstatt, Upper Austria, is a village in the Salzkammergut, a region in Austria. It is located near the Hallstätter See (a lake). At the 2001 census, it had 946 inhabitants.Hallstatt is known for its production of salt, dating back to prehistoric times, and gave its name to the Hallstatt culture.

Salt was a valuable resource, so the region was historically very wealthy. It is possible to tour the world's first known salt mine, located above downtown Hallstatt.

The village also gave its name to the early Iron Age Hallstatt culture and is a World Heritage Site for Cultural Heritage. Hallstatt is a popular tourist attraction owing to its small-town appeal and can be toured on foot in ten minutes.
