Postcard from Zurich, Switzerland
This week’s photo comes from the shores of the Limmat River in central Zurich. Though many travellers only use Zurich as a gateway to the Swiss Alps or neighbouring countries, we think its well worth a visit.
The twin-towered church in the photo is the iconic Grossmünster (translates to ‘Great Minster’), which is said to have first been built in 820. See more photos from our trip to Zurich.
Quick facts – Zurich was named the city with the best quality of life in the world as well as the wealthiest city in Europe.
