Switzerland has long been one of the world's great tourist destinations. It boasts an extraordinary abundance of natural beauties and interesting attractions. The 4000 mt-high peaks of the Alps began attracting the first modern tourists during the 19th Century. Since then, Switzerland has developed into a treasured destination for travellers of every nationality, age and condition, who find here modern tourist facilities, sightseeing for every taste, and a welcoming hospitality.
Switzerland's tourist attractions are as diverse as its cultural identity. The country is known as a summer and winter sports paradise (Zermatt, St Moritz, Interlaken, Gstaad, the Jungfrau, Verbier are but a few of the many suggestive names). It hosts cosmopolitan cities like Geneva, Zurich, Basel, as well as several enchanting towns (Lucerne, Neuchâtel, Lugano, etc.).
