The small Austrian town of Hallstatt is situated in the stunning Dachstein mountain range. On one side, it is surrounded by the emerald lake of the same name, while on the other, it is protected by green mountain slopes. It seems like such a fantastical place that one might think it exists only in imagination.
However, when you find yourself here, you realize that it is a reality, and you are awestruck by the pristine beauty. Hallstatt feels like a direct link to the past, where you can still descend into the salt mine and find skulls of local residents preserved in the church according to ancient customs.
In this town, there is no desire to hurry anywhere. Time passes imperceptibly, and the clean air and breathtaking landscapes compel you to silently savor the existing elysium.
