Switzerland facts and history in brief

Excerpted from Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Zurich is the largest city in Switzerland (population 364,558 in 2002) and capital of the canton of Zurich.
The origin of the name is most likely the Celtic word Turus, a corroborating reference to which was found on a tomb inscription dating from the Roman occupation in the 2nd century AD.
The roman name for the town was Turicum and in the local dialect it is called Zuri (pronounced tsyri SAMPA).
The city is Switzerland's main commercial and banking centre, and home to Switzerland's largest airport.

Situated where the river Limmat leaves the Lake Zurich, surrounded by wooded hills.
The river Sihl meets with the Limmat at the end of Platzspitz, which borders the the Swiss National Museum (Landesmuseum).

This information was correct in December 2003. E. & O.E.

During 1978, my daughter, Sarolta and I spent some time travelling around Switzerland, visiting many cities and other attractions.

We have enjoyed our stay in Zurich.

In 2003, Hui Chin and I stayed a few days in Zurich to explore the city from head to toe.

We have enjoyed our stay, but expensive.

In 2004 we have returned to Zurich a number of times as we travelled from one city to another in Switzerland.
