Austrian nature: picturesque mountain landscapes

Each country boasts its own flora and fauna, picturesque landscapes and breathtaking views. Austria is a fabulous country where you can relax your soul, traveling by private car or tourist bus. Most of the country's territory, almost 80%, is occupied by the Alps. Moreover, due to the complex system of mountain ranges and rather excellent weather conditions, it is customary to conditionally zonate Austria into three regions: central, lower and upper.

The central part occupies almost 63% of the entire territory of Austria, covering almost the entire south of the country. The nature of Austria is about 30 mountain ranges and massifs, which form a complex chain of mountains and valleys, each of which has its own natural and climatic conditions. Some of the mountains, even in summer, are covered with ice, but there are also many peaks that are completely devoid of snow cover in the warm season. Numerous mountain streams originate in the picturesque valleys, which have the status of one of the cleanest in Europe. The highest point in Australia is Mount Großglockner, which has two peaks at the same time: Großglockner(3798m) and Krainglockner(3770m). At the foot of the mountain is the largest Austrian glacier - Pasterets, 9km long. About 30 local mountains reach an elevation of 3 thousand meters, and 6 of them reach a height of 3.5 thousand meters.

The nature of Austria in the southern part is characterized by dense coniferous forests, picturesque alpine meadows, beautiful valleys and crystal clear waters.

Upper Austria: a tourist paradise

Upper Austria is the Alpine and Carpathian foothills with moderately high mountain peaks(up to 2.5 thousand meters). The nature of Austria in this area is a mixed spruce, oak and beech forests that stretch throughout the northwestern part of the country. Mountain ranges flank the Danube Valley, gradually merging with the Northern limestone Alps, forming a single vast resort area, renowned for its natural beauty. Karst sites and the most useful mineral springs make this region of Austria even more popular. The most picturesque alpine meadows, framed by mountain lakes and glaciers, beautiful mixed forests and rivers at the foot of the mountains - all this is the nature of Austria, which is very difficult to describe briefly. There are many mountain rivers and beautiful lakes in Upper Austria. Together with the Vienna Woods, the Austrian Granite-Gneiss Plateau and the Bohemian Massif, this part of Austria occupies approximately 25% of the total territory.

Lower Austria: the best agronomic region

Lower Austria occupies about 12% of the total area of ​​the country, almost all of this territory belongs to the so-called Pannonia(Danube Valley), which is also known as the Vienna Basin. It is not for nothing that the lower part of Austria bears such a name, as it is indeed the lowest part of the country, whose lowest point is only 115 meters above sea level. In this part of the country is Lake Neusiedler See, which is also a biosphere reserve and a popular holiday destination for locals and tourists. In this place the nature of Austria is picturesque in its own way.

First of all, Salzburg is the city of Mozart. Not only his apartment, but the whole house was turned into a museum. The annual Salzburg Festival is dedicated to Mozart.
