Are you a Frozen fan? Then don’t miss a visit to this village
Any fan of the film Frozen would vouch for its beautiful town and picturesque locales. The snow-capped mountains, the shimmering lakes and the white layer of ice was as much alluring as the characters and stories. And to be able to visit a place like that would be a dream come true for a Frozen fan.
The tiny picturesque mountain hamlet of Hallstatt, Austria – located about an hour southeast of Salzburg – looks similar to the fictional village of Arendelle depicted in the films.
Since the release of the first instalment of the Disney film, the fans try to visit the place whenever possible. Actually, after the release of part 2 of the Frozen movie, the village had to cut down on tourist influx due to the rising number of buses and cars arriving in the hamlet.
Now that the pandemic may get over with the advent of the vaccine, the 800-odd villagers hope to welcome tourists again to their small town. Don’t miss it if you’re a Frozen fan too!
It technically took the movie 70 years to get made. Its origin story is The Snow Queen by Hans Christian Andersen, and Walt Disney had "dreamed" of adapting it since as early as 1937. And it took more than 600 people to work for almost 2.5 years to finish the movie.
