One of the most popular destinations in Europe, Switzerland “enchants” not only Europeans but also travellers from America and Asia since the era of the Grand Tour (1660-1840), which was the traditional European trip of young and noble mainly Europeans.
Although most of its reputation has to do with snow and skiing, Switzerland has several cities and places worth seeing that will give you experiences, beautiful images and definitely an enviable photo album. If you are going to travel to Switzerland, do not forget to go through as many of the following places as you can, which are among its top destinations and guarantee you magical memories.
The largest, most famous city in Switzerland and the one that those who do not excel in geography confuse as its capital, Zurich, is located in the heart not only of Europe but also of those who have visited it at least once in their lives. On the northern shores of the lake of the same name with the wonderful view of the snowy Alps on the horizon, Zurich has exceptional beauty, multicultural air and is suitable for many activities, from sailing on the lake to hiking in the Uetliberg mountain. It has over 50 museums and more than 100 galleries and nightlife that you may not find anywhere else in the country.
The second most populous city after Zurich, Geneva gives you the opportunity to “dust off” your French accent, to get to know its cosmopolitan, but also the most humanitarian aspect, since it is the European headquarters of the UN and the birthplace of the International Red Cross and to Experience the “Capital of Peace” up close.
