Zurich: the little big city
Quick facts about Zurich
Zurich has only 400,000 inhabitants, but it is the largest city in Switzerland. The size doesn’t matter in this case as Zurich is a global financial center and banking hub. Many mistake it for capital of Switzerland (the capital is Bern), and for a good reason: it’s a quintessential Swiss city and at the same time very international. It is also a city with very natural mixture between ancient history and very modern life on every step.
It is sitting on the shores of Lake Zurich and banks of river Limmat, the setting that reminds very much of Geneva. Unlike Geneva, which is reflecting French culture, Zurich is predominantly influenced by its Swiss German heritage.
