Zurich is Switzerland’s largest city and a global center for business, banking and finance. Zurich's origins date back to 15BC, when the Romans established a station to oversee trade passing through the Alps. Nowadays, it is a relatively small city - under half a million population - with surprising offerings to travelers! Even just as a transit place to get to ski resorts and fairytale-like towns, the history and attractions are there and walkable to enjoy at a leisurely pace. The picturesque old town with the medieval history, the impressive religious edifices and the Renaissance architecture is considered one of the top attractions with the Bahnhofstrasse, St Peter’s Church and Lake Zurich’s views and strolls following closely. Among the reasons to visit Zurich are also the over 50 museums and 100 art galleries, some of the most eclectic ones worldwide, and any of the 14 museums specifically designed for children – featuring anything from dinosaurs and culture to modern-day science and technology.
