Travel to Switzerland - See Zurich, Geneva, Jet d'Eau, Lucerne, Augusta Raurica
Switzerland, a small landlocked nation in Western Europe, is officially known as the Swiss Confederation. It is bordered by Austria, France, Germany, Italy and Liechtenstein.
From oval shaped castles like Chateau de Chillon to the lofty Alpine landscapes, Switzerland has a bit of something for everyone. Clean and gorgeous, Switzerland is a wonderful place to visit. As evidenced by having four official languages (German, French, Italian and Romansh), the population is so diverse that it lends an international aspect to this country full of outstanding attractions.
Avoid this locale in September if you are not partial to rain, avoid it in July if you detest hot temperatures, or avoid it in January when the temperature may be colder than you like. Dining places feature cuisine that runs the gamut from steak and fries to fondue.
The political capital of Switzerland is Berne, although Zurich is the largest city in terms of population and is considered by many to be this nation's cultural and commercial center. Geneva is the second most populated city in Switzerland, and is home to many international organizations.
Augusta Raurica, located near the Rhein, is the largest site of ruins in Switzerland. The ruins date back to 43 BC when Roman citizens lived there. An authentic Roman house is present among the exhibits in the Roman Museum.
One of the top landmarks in Geneva is Jet d'Eau, one of the world's tallest fountains. It is a sight to see with great bursts of water that can drench spectators who happen to get a bit too close. Another popular tourist destination is the Patek-Phillippe Museum, which features quality time pieces from long ago and include many pieces that were crafted either in Geneva or another location in Switzerland.
Lucerne, strategically located in the heart of Switzerland's most beautiful scenery, features beautiful mountains, stunning lakes, and lush fields of edelweiss. Geneva, resting alongside scenic Lake Geneva, features the fast pace of city life coupled with cultural events and museums.
