 Kláštorná knižnica v Admonte, Rakúsko
 Article Code-no: Leisure-Eu-En-01, 8.30.2010

I work in the library and books are still a matter of my heart.
I was therefore very pleased when the program of our family vacation trip to Radstadt in 2011 included a visit to the library
of the Benedictine monastery in the ancient town of Admont in Styria ca 20 km from the town of Liezen.
To the place I learned that this was not just a small library. In Admont, in the building of the monastery which was founded
in the second half of the 11th century, there is the largest monastic library in the world. Experts call it the eighth wonder of the world. Library (see photo from web includes around 200,000 volumes, of which about 1,400 manuscripts, mostly from the Middle Ages and about 530 incunabula. Particularly appreciated is the large 3-volume Bible from the period around the year 1070. The books are placed on shelves in a white room with magnificent Baroque wall frescoes which please the eye of art lovers. (MO) Video.

 Hallstatt, Austria   Article Code-no: Leisure-Eu-En-02, 3.9.2011

 Hallstatt is a small mining village in the region of Upper Austria; from its back it is protected by a steep hill, from the opposite side it has a beautiful view of the lake Hallstätter See. Along with the Dachstein Mountains landscape area Inneres Salzkammergut is one of the UNESCO World Cultural Heritage.
The village is not big, it has fewer than 800 residents. In addition to impressive panoramas it also offers a remarkable place, because of which the visit here is worthwhile. The steep hill hides of one of the oldest salt caves in the world. You can reach it in two ways: by foot (experienced hikers) or by cable car. In addition to an informed interpretation of the history of the mine, exhibits and a video, you can feel like old miners when slipping down in the wooden trough. Do not worry that you destroy your own clothes. Before entering the underground you can borrow a green clothing that will heat you and you can fully enjoy a crazy ride in the wooden trough and in the good train on the way out of the mine. Nice memory of this trip can also be the photo from driving in the trough and measured speed at which you were dashing down. (MO)
