ZURICH AT A GLIMPSE
Zurich is the largest city in Switzerland, wealthiest in Europe, with the best quality of life in the world. Its history goes back to its founding by the Romans in 15 BC and has a rich medieval background.

Today it is a leading global city listed among the world's largest financial centers. Although the city has a comparatively small population, it is home to many financial institutions and banking giants.

The most important sights are mostly based in Zurich’s town center. Here are some must-sees:
  • Old Town (the town’s cultural, historical and social center)
  • Grossmünster church (its double towers are Zürich's main landmark)
  • Peterskirche (Peter's Church that has Europe's largest clock-face)
  • Fraumünster (Minster of Our Lady - 9th century Gothic abbey known for its stained glass windows created by Giacometti and Chagall)
  • Lake Zurich (fancied place for walks and boat-rides)
  • Uetliberg peak (869 meter-high mountain with a renowned observation tower)
Apart from that, there’s much to see for culture lovers: visit the local museum, Opera House or the concert hall - Tonhalle. Moreover, Zurich has one of the most famous and exquisite shopping miles in the world as well as varied unique cultural offerings.

See Zurich's medieval buildings, Renaissance town halls, walk down its curvy narrow streets and experience the city’s plentiful opportunities for entertainment.
