First off, I must say that Zurich really impressed me: a very rich, clean and orderly city lyin’ in a beautiful natural scenery, surrounded by gentle slopes and foothills. Also, the public transportation network is very efficient and takes you around everywhere in a matter of minutes.
The city center itself lies between two ranges of foothills, by the northern shore of a beautiful lake, while the rest of the city expands mainly northward in all directions.
In the morning I took a stroll downtown and around the lake side; then, in the afternoon I took a short (two-hour) trip around the lake, where I also happened to to sun tan a little bit :-)
Below, you find a selection of pix from my sighyseeing tour. Enjoy!
