Zurich is the largest city in Switzerland. There are many beautiful places to visit among them ZOO Zurich, a home to over 375 animal species. Another interesting place is, without any doubt, focusTerra. It will take you for a dynamic walk through the history of our planet. Don't forget to visit the peak of Uetliberg. Up from there you may enjoy amazing vista over the city and Lake Zurich.

Swiss Zurich is not only a very cosmopolitan city where everyone feels really like at home, but also an area that the history can touch you very intensively. This is true despite the fact that most sites you can see not in one day, but few hours. Despite this the people remains on their memory, which are hardly deletes from the head.
Switzerland, officially the Swiss Confederation, in the past also the Swiss Confederation, is a smaller landlocked country in Central Europe. It lies between Lake Constance, Lake Geneva, the Rhine and the Alps. The state consists of a total of 26 cantons. In the past, this area was home to many families and nobles, who have left us many beautiful and well-preserved castles and chateaux. And believe me, some are like a fairy tale!
Swiss Geneva is located near the border with France, just below the highest peaks of the Alps. It is one of the most important centers of diplomacy and one of the best places to live worldwide. Let's look into it together.
This time we visit a small European country whose immediate neighbors are Austria and Switzerland. If you think it is Liechtenstein, do you think it is right. This principality extends into the Rhine Valley, surrounded by the majestic Alps.
Today, we take a look at Zurich from bird's eye for we make a hike onto Üetliberg hill which belongs to the Albis mountains. The main train station in the town will be our point of start. Here we get on a train and take ride to the hill.
Today, we take you once again to Zurich. This time we visit ETH Zurich university, one of world's leading universities in technology and nature sciences.
Last time, we made a brief note on the fact that Geneva is home to many international organizations and that there is the Palace of the Nations, the UN headquarters.
Zurich means for tourists primarily city of Limmat River and slightly high, but more beautiful historic centre. But for the Swiss is primarily of financial capital across the country. If Zurich fell down, and would fell the all Swiss economy, almost as famous as their watches.
