Let’s face it, Switzerland is hardly the most famous nation in Europe. However, where other countries like to shout about their strengths or historical clout, Switzerland likes to play things cool, and despite it being one of the most exciting places to live in Europe, you’re not likely to hear the Swiss boasting about it!
For instance, the country’s stunning natural landscape is reason enough for moving to Switzerland, and as a nation is is arguably the most diverse and stunning landscape in Europe. It is home to the famous Swiss alps, which offer magnificent hiking trails and world beating Ski-resorts.
As Switzerland is surrounded by five nations (Austria, Liechtenstein, Italy, France, and Germany) it is a distinctly multi-cultural nation, and you will find that the nations food and drink is both delicious and unique. It is also a multi-lingual nation with four different official languages; however, this shouldn’t present too much of a problem for anyone relocating to Switzerland from the UK, as English is spoken throughout.
Despite being influenced on all sides, by the best its neighbours have to offer, Switzerland is a nation with its own distinctive flavour, and anyone moving to Switzerland will soon discover that all of the stereotypes that the denote the nation actually ring true! Whether it’s the cows wearing cow-bells, the national obsession with chocolate and cheese or the general laid back attitude of the natives.
