Zurich Overview

Zürich is the largest city in Switzerland and the capital of the canton of Zürich and has around 400,000 inhabitants. The city is situated in north-central Switzerland and the lower end of Lake Zürich (Zürichsee). It´s also spread on the banks of the river Limmat, which flows from the lake and even the Alps can be seen from the city center. Zürich is one of the richest and the cleanest city in the world. The inhabitants are mostly multilingual but the official language is German. The history of the city dates back to 15 BC, when it was founded by Romans and they called it Turicum. In the early 16th century Zürich became a center of the Protestant Reformation in Europe.

Zurich is very metropolitan city. You can meet people from different countries. You can speak many languages, e.g. English, German, Italian, French... all these languages are commonly used mainly in the German part of Zurich. Basically, there are lots of places to visit. Uetliberg is a beautiful observation tower, Bahnhofstrasse-great shopping place with all types of shops. Worth to visit when you feel like relaxing is Hurlimann spa where is amazing hot pool just on the top of the roof (very romantic place :). In Niederdorf (old town) you can find great bars, restaurants and cafes. People are nice. You won´t forget this visit!

In Zurich there is a lot to see... The nightlife is great- many latino bars, clubs mainly on the Long street. However, many crazy people there :-). Zurich is very typical with the lake side- in summer time many activities during days and nights. Although, Swiss people are generally cold and prices are very high. Anyway, the city is very clean and safe!
