Switzerland has emerged from the fusion of German, French and Italian cultures over centuries of peace in a war-torn continent. However, unlike these very countries, Switzerland has stirred clear from any conflicts and wars that have ripped the world apart. Set on the river Rhine and surrounded by spectacular Alps and numerous lakes, Switzerland is one of the most heartwarming places on earth, irrespective of its cool climate.
The peaceful character of Switzerland must have something to do with its heavenly cheese and chocolates, snow covered valleys and sporty attitude (Swiss knife anyone!), the Heidi clones yodeling through the valley, a banking system efficient to the strike of a Swiss clock manufactured in its own clock industry, or for that matter the noble prize garnering universities that have given the world more patents and theories than the number of hair on Einstein’s head. Yes or no?
