Country Details

 

The beautiful, mountainous country of Switzerland is landlocked in south-central Europe, and remains one of the most popular travel destinations on the planet. It’s famed for banking institutions, watch makers, cheeses and chocolates, mountain glaciers and lakes, and of course, fabulous skiing in the Alps.

Politically, its long-standing neutrality is highly respected by the major nations of the world, and in fact, Switzerland played no part in World War I and II.

The Switzerland maps and information pages are currently being revised, and will be posted soon.
