Zurich is the largest city in Switzerland in terms of area and population. Since Zurich is the hub of the Swiss rail network and also operates the largest and busiest airport in the country, it is usually the first place tourists arrive. Due to the city's proximity to the tourist resorts in the Swiss Alps, it is called the "portal to the Alps". More than 50 museums, more than 100 galleries, about 60 cinemas are located in Zurich, and most of the ancient attractions are located in the old city - along the river and on the embankment.


To visit Zurich, you need a Schengen visa to Switzerland, which allows you to visit other Schengen countries. To obtain a visa, you need a valid passport with two blank pages.

Zurich hotels: reviews of tourists

It is quite difficult to find a cheap hotel in Zurich. Cheap (by local standards) rooms can only be rented in not the most pleasant areas. In the center, even the simplest hostel room will cost more than staying in a three-star hotel in another country.

Hotels in the old town always meet all modern requirements: breakfast, free Internet, excellent service, comfortable rooms.

Getting a visa to Switzerland is not difficult, so it is worth visiting this small country to get to know Zurich and itsattractions.
