Built among the mountains, Old Town serves as a huge archaeological site for very old salt mines, some of which are active to this day. Descend underground to see the salt lake and pay a visit to the prehistoric mummy of a miner frozen in salt. The village glows with baroque ornaments on colorful buildings--it sits alongside the lake and is ripe with cafes and restaurants.

  • This town is amazingly beautiful. All the old house and the lake make it so awesome. I’ve traveled a lot and this is one of the most beautiful places that I’ve seen. Make sure to see the church.
