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.

Old Town Reviews
Όμορφο χωριό, υπέροχο σκηνικό, αλλά νομίζω μόνο για ημερήσια εκδρομή. Τετάρτη πρωί και σχεδόν τα μισά καταστήματα κλειστά, παρόλα αυτά , για να κάνεις την βόλτα σου είναι ωραίο μέρος. more »Beautiful village, lovely setting, but I think only for a day trip. Wednesday morning and almost half the shops closed, however, to make your walk is a nice place.
Сложная дорога,серпантин ,туман.В остальном ежесекундный восторг от красоты природы и архитектуры.С маленькими детьми не рекомендую. more »In the rest of the every minute the delight of nature and architecture.
