Zürich

In less than 24 hours, Voted as my favorite city in the World

Zürich is like a dream land, it is like entering a big Hamleys shop only made in the 1500. It is a true toy city. Art is everywhere, in everything you look at, or at least that is how I describe it.

Photograph of Zurich at NightI didn’t get the chance to explore it as much as I wanted to do, but I was told it is small and easy to explore.

1- Lake Zürich 

Zürich is the largest city in Switzerland, and is surrounded by Lake Zürich, which you will get to see from wherever you are at in Zürich.

2- Roam around Altstadt

Zurich is divided into 12 districts and Altstadt is the 1st district of Zürich and is the center, the old town. It is divided into 4 parts: Rathaus, Hochschulen, Lindenhod and City.

Or what are also known as Zunfte which stand for the association with artisans or merchants who control a practice of their craft in a particular town. In Zurich under the system in 1336 with the “guild revolution” of Rodlf Burn.
