Solothurn

One of the most beautiful cities, I have ever visited.

Medieval Baroque city in switzerland  Solothurn is a small city located along the Aare river and is known as the finest baroque town in Switzerland. Now all I wanted after visiting Solothurn, is to go back in time and history… Or, move to Solothurn and start my life all over again…

Now unfortunately I only had few hours to roam around this beautiful city, and I must admit that I was in dream land all along. Solothurn is a very small city, with no traffic and is very easy to walk around and explore. And although it is small, I do not believe it can get boring. There is way too much details going on in this city to explore and enjoy.
