Historic Zurich

The most beautiful city in Switzerland, located on the shores of Lake Zurich. The capital of the homonymous German-speaking canton. A magnificent heritage of unique medieval architecture: the Grossmünster Cathedral, the Fraumünster Abbey with the famous stained glass windows of Marc Chagall, St. Peter's Church with the largest clock in Europe. Zurich from the side seems to be a skillfully made toy by a Swiss master , placed on an oval mirror

The heart of Zurich is an old city, closely embracing the river with its stone bridges and towers, narrow medieval streets, an intricate labyrinth winding over the hills that still remember the Romans. “Some kind of strong, and at the same time elegant city, especially in the lower part, by the river and lake. How many delights in Gothic buildings, how much accumulated human decoration in the streets, which are sometimes so crooked and narrow” A.I. Solzhenitsyn.
