Switzerland: Urban and Provincial

Study in Switzerland

The Swiss landscape is dominated by the Alps, a high mountain chain that traverses the center and south of the country. Its strategic location nestled between many countries, as well as its plurality of languages, makes Switzerland an extremely rich country in every respect.

Switzerland's geography is charcterized by mountains: 50% of Swiss territory sits at an altitude of more than 1,000 meters. The natural terrain of Switzerland is truly spectacular, as much for its valleys and mountains as for its waterfalls of thawing snow. This is a country full of green and white: rich vegetation and blankets of snow.

The Alpine landscape is ideal for those who want to relax and disconnect from the stress of day-to-day life. But if you're looking for bustle, Zurich is a city full of art and culture where modernity and commerice mix with the narrow pedestrian streets of the Old town. Despite their urban areas, Swiss cities maintain a provincial air. They are easy to navigate and get to know in a short amount of time.

The excursions you can take outside the city are just as fascinating: Uetilberg, Langenberg Wildpark, the Irgenhausen Castle or Rapperswil. Within Zurich, you shouldn't miss a boat trip on the lake or a stroll around the Old town. Classical music aficionados will love the famous festival of Easter concerts in Lucerna's Cultural and Folkore Center, attended by more than 13,000 people every year.

Another lovely destination is Montreux, located in French-speaking Switzerland right on Lake Geneva, a city both quaint and modern wrapped into one.
