Hallstatt is an Austrian town located picturesquely on the shores of Lake Hallstatt, in the valley surrounded by the peaks of the Salzburg Alps. The town has very long history as Hallstatt is known for its production of salt, dating back to prehistoric times. Salt was also the main source of income for centuries. Nevertheless, today residents of the town make their living mostly from tourism. The town is the UNESCO World Heritage Site and is so popular that the Chinese development company built a full-scale replica of the entire town in Huizhou – it was completed in 2012.
