Zurich is the main city of Switzerland and is considered year after year as one of the cities with the best quality of life in the world.
The city surrounds the lake of Zurich with adjoining rivers and it has a mountainous system that surrounds the lake and thanks to it the views for its residents are wonderful, the Swiss Alps are relatively near and can be appreciated also from several points of the city.

Switzerland has its own currency: the Swiss franc; housing, transport and food costs are quite high but top quality. Switzerland is known for being a peaceful country and does not lean for any political position or participate in war matters which for many years has helped the country and especially Zurich to become a financial capital of Europe and the world. Its bank is famous for housing the investments of several of the richest and most influential people in the world.
In addition to hosting several Swiss banks and having one of the most impressive gold reserves in the world, Zurich also has the most expensive street in the world where only luxury brands are present and especially Swiss watches something for which it is also famous The Swiss capital. If you like watches with costs between 100, 000 USD and 1 million USD or more, you can find them on the main avenue of Zurich.
Several of the inhabitants of the city besides having their beautiful houses, they usually have handmade boats of several million euros in the lake of Zurich. Navigation is a common activity although high cost but that many can afford to have
Another common activity is to use the rivers that leave the lake to have fun in the summer using animals, tires or floating beds. Can you imagine doing this a Monday after the office?
In addition to beautiful lakes and rivers, Zurich has forests in the mountainous system that surrounds the lake and where its inhabitants can relax and enjoy with their pets from nature.
In winter these forests are all white being also a delight for the inhabitants of Zurich.
You can try in Zurich the two main food products for which Switzerland is famous: cheeses and chocolate.
In winter it is common to eat fondues and raclette, the fondue is a pot with Swiss cheese that is eaten with bread, the cheese is neither very liquid nor very thick and also carry spices that makes it a delicacy.
Raclette is also consumed mainly in winter and this consists of melting cheese from a large cheese wheel or small square containers and then pour the same into baked potatoes or any other type of companion that comes to mind as bacon, meat or vegetables.
And you can't miss the chocolates of national brands like Lindtt or Toblerone but the best thing is to try the ones made by local artisans.
