Switzerland is a federal republic consisting of 26 cantons, with Bern as the seat of the federal authorities. The country is situated in western Europe, where it is bordered by Germany to the north, France to the west, Italy to the south, and Austria and Liechtenstein to the east.

Switzerland is a landlocked country geographically divided between the Alps, the Swiss Plateau and the Jura. While the Alps occupy the greater part of the territory, the Swiss population is concentrated mostly on the Plateau, where the largest cities are to be found. Among them are the two global cities and economic centres of Zurich and Geneva.

Top destinations:

Berne — an amazingly well preserved old-town with arcades along almost every street; great restaurants abound, as do bars and clubs
Basel — the traveller's gateway to the German Rhineland and Alsace
Geneva — this centre of arts and culture is an international city home to around 200 governmental and non-governmental organizations
Interlaken — the outdoor and action sports capital of Switzerland; anything from skydiving, bungee jumping, hiking, white-water rafting, to canyoning
Lausanne — scenery, dining, dancing, boating and the Swiss wine-country are the draws
Lucerne — main city of the Central region with direct water links to all of the early Swiss historic sights
Lugano — a gorgeous old-town, a pretty lake, and the food is simply amazing
Zurich — a major centre of banking and has a thriving nightlife
