Meet Zurich, the City Regarded as the Nymph of Alps
Meet Zurich, the City Regarded as the Nymph of Alps
Zurich is the largest city in Switzerland and the capitol of the canton with approximately 400,000 inhabitants. Moreover, it is an idyllic place to spend some days in order to have something to remember for a lifetime, since it is a magical city to visit and a fantastic landscape to get around. The living quality in Zurich is obvious everywhere, helping the tourist and business growth.

The city is located on the northern coast of the namesake lake, which is an excellent place to take your first taste of Alps. Be sure that you take a cruise in the atmospheric waters of the lake, admiring the mansions and villas of the coastline, as well as the marvelous alpine scenery. The Felsenegg (a huge fountain in the lake) can complete the absolute view, helping you imagine your permanent stay there. The lake is actually a water basin, where Limmat River outfalls and is also a satisfying refuge for the local fauna. As soon as you have enough of fresh air, you may disembark from the boat and continue your tour, reaching the Altstadt. Altstadt means ‘the old town’ and it is, obviously, the old part of the city, which is perfectly preserved and a fabulous choice to walk among its paved streets, enjoying a snack or a cup of coffee in one of its café. Old buildings and houses can really leave you the impression that time has stopped. Insomuch you have durability, keep walking all over the old city without regrets. Zurich is a family friendly city too, since there are facilities, which can immerse children. Zürich Zoologischer Garten is one of those facilities and is about a modern zoo, which spreads on a hill, hosting more than 2200 specimens of 300 species. On the other hand, for those who are football addicted, FIFA’s headquarters are next to the zoo and give the ultimate opportunity to the soccer funs to pose next to the FIFA World Cup and a lot of other exhibits.

In general, Zurich is a captivating city, without the famous attractions, but with an atmosphere and an architecture that can make you immigrate there immediately. After your accommodation settling, surge at the heart of the Alps!
