Switzerland's majestic mountain panoramas, glittering lakes, picturesque Alpine villages, architectural edifices, and local landmarks spanning hundreds of years are just a few of the impressive attractions this guide showcases. The country's snowcapped peaks, the myth of the Matt...erhorn, city art and rural culture, avenues of palm trees, and expanses of water bathed in the crystalline light of Ticiono are all captured, depicting the Swiss Confederation as one of the most unique landscapes in the heart of Europe. The region's famous culinary specialties of cheese and chocolate are also highlighted, along with how they are created. The idyllic countryside is portrayed, right out of Johanna Spyri's Heidi, scenically offsetting the elegance of cities such as Geneva and Zurich while the beautiful slopes of chic ski resorts, including St. Moritz and Davos, are illustrated. Displaying the country's full diversity, natural beauty, and unforgettable charm, this travel companion also covers the secret behind the holes in Swiss cheese, the traditional Swiss Carnival, and the legendary Oath of Allegiance. The panoramic trains of Switzerland's mountain railways and the country's literary history are also featured.
