Switzerland prides itself on its high standard of publicly-funded education. As a country with few natural resources, its prosperity depends to a large extent on its brain power.


Switzerland’s economy is based on a highly qualified labour force performing highly skilled work. The main areas include microtechnology, hitech, biotechnology and pharmaceuticals, as well as banking and insurance know-how. The service sector now employs the greatest number of people.
Switzerland has a population of about 7.7 million. Foreigners account for around 20% of the resident population. The average age is increasing, as people live longer and have fewer children. Lifestyles are changing as the Swiss adapt to new demands.
Switzerland has an area of 41,285 square kilometres (15,940 square miles). The productive area - that is, the area without the lakes, rivers, unproductive vegetation and no vegetation at all - covers 30,753 square km (11,870 square miles).

Switzerland's history cannot be understood without considering its geography, which has had a considerable impact on determining the development of its way of life.


Culture, Leisure & Sport
The culture of Switzerland is characterised by diversity, reflected by the wide range of traditional customs .....
Swiss Chocolate

Switzerland is a small mountainous country, whose climate is anything but tropical. It never had any colonies in cocoa-growing countries in South America, or Africa, or anywhere else. It may seem surprising that it has become one of the world's leading chocolate manufacturers. 

Swiss Train

"Der Kluge reist im Zuge," was a famous slogan of the Swiss Federal Railways (SBB) - or, as it might be put in English: "Those with brain take the train."

Swiss Watches

"I mustn't be late for school!" "I've got a train to catch!" "The shops are about to shut!" "It's time for my favourite TV programme!" Many of us are only too aware of the need to know what time it is.

Swiss Mountain

If the Swiss want to boast about their mountains, they can find a few reasons:   They have more high peaks than any other country in Europe: 48 over 4000 meters (13,120 feet)

Swiss Cheese
Hard cheese, soft cheese, cottage cheese, cheese made in mountain chalets, cheese made in valley factories, cheese shaved into rosettes, cheese boxed in red pine, cheese melted in wine to make fondue, hot cheese dribbled over potatoes to make raclette... There's much more to Swiss cheese than making holes!
Swiss Bread

Switzerland claims it has more varieties of bread than any other country - between 200 and 300 kinds, rivalling the number of its cheeses.
