Zurich is the capital city of Switzerland and also its largest city. Situated on the north western tip of Lake Zurich (Zürichsee) there has been a settlement here since Roman times when it was referred to as Turicem. Just 19 miles from the Alps and situated on both sides of the Limmat river, it is home to one of the world's largest financial centres.
This is one of the wealthiest cities in Europe and has some of the world's highest property prices. With its variety of art galleries and museums, vibrant city life and exclusive high quality shopping outlets, Zurich is a leading global city with many well known companies having offices or headquarters here.
Zurich is a popular tourist destination and an easy city to explore. The main attractions are on either side of the Limmat river between Lake Zurich and the Railway Station. With its impressive architecture and cobbled streets, the ornate churches, old houses and city squares all make Zurich an enjoyable experience. There are plenty of places to wine and dine and sit back and enjoy the scenery.
