Austria:

Did you know that salt mining started about 7000 years ago? In fact we can still visit the oldest salt mine in the world where it all began!
 
Amazing, right?
 
Do you know where we need to travel in order to visit this beautiful mine?
 
The one dating back 7000 years is indeed Hallstatt Austria.
 
7000 years ago, as the prehistoric humans from Hallstatt began to take the salt from the salt mine who would of guessed, that this little village would give its name to a period in history – the Hallstatt period (800-400 BC).
 
Rich findings in Hallstatt and the upper valley of Hallstatt gave this village international recognition; even today discoveries are still made in the salt mountain of Hallstatt. Among the most beautiful places of interest in Austria are the oldest salt mine in the world.
