Switzerland has absorbed all captivating beauties and contrasts, offering to its visitors a rare combination of natural sights, and those created by humans. It reminds of Europe in miniature. It is situated in the center of Europe. The most part of Switzerland lies in the Alps. It presents a special mosaic world of various cultures, languages and traditions. The Alpine ranges, powerful glaciers, huge mountain valleys, roaring falls, pure lakes, fast running rivers, the elegant cities and well-known resorts really blow the mind of all travelers. The Swiss Alps provide ideal opportunities for different types of sport especially in winter. Hundreds of kilometers of the first-class routes, rural traditions are combined with distinguished elegance and tranquility. There are over 140 ski centers; the one third of them is ranked as the best resort. These are Davos, Zermatt, St. Moritz. The romantic Swiss towns with paved small streets, small villages, lost in gorges, lonely snow-covered farms among the Alpine meadows – in such a way look sports centers here. Switzerland offers not only skiing, but also all other types of winter entertainments such as sledge driving, curling, snow surfing, skating etc. The country is very costly, however all expenses are justified by high-quality service and gained comfort and pleasure. A separate page in the history of Switzerland undoubtedly belongs to its watches. The production of the Swiss watches began in the 16th century when the famous French watchmakers settled in Geneva. The best branded watches are displayed in some Basel shops. Despite strong influence of neighbor countries, the Swiss cuisine deserves special attention. The main and most widespread components of the Swiss cuisine are milk, cheese, potatoes, oil, vegetables, a small amount of meat and herbs with spices. Cheeses and chocolate, of course, deserve one more compliment; they are vital components of many traditional dishes.
