Zurich is the capital of Switzerland and its largest city. It’s location and transport links make it ideal for exploring the rest of Europe. The city is one of the wealthiest in the world and consistently tops Mercer’s quality of life survey. It is a global centre of the financial world; it’s estimated that 25% of the world’s gold is stored here. Zurich has a very international feel, over 32% of its population is foreign-born. Far from being a stuffy banking town, Zurich is turning hip, with trendy nightlife and restaurants being created out of disused factories and warehouses. Sport is important in the city. Zurich is the home to FIFA and as such football is very popular in the city. Despite being a huge global metropolis, Zurich is minutes away from spectacular mountain landscapes giving you plenty of chance to escape the city at the weekend.
