Zurich - A trip to Switzerland

Zurich is the largest city in Switzerland and the capital of the Canton of Zurich.

Zurich was permanently settled for over 2,000 years and was founded by the Romans, who called it Turicum. However, much older settlements have been found, dating back more than 6,400 years.

Zurich is home to numerous financial institutions and banking companies.

Zurich and Lake Zurich is wonderful for a city break, preferably not just for a day but at least 1 week.
